I have a virus on my computer that wont allow me to open any programs except for firefox. I keep getting a pop-up notification that says, "Windows reports that computer is infected. Antivirus software helps to protect your computer against viruses and other security threats. Click here for the scan you computer. Your system might be at risk now." When i clicked on the notice the 1st time it popped up it opened internet explorer and went to a web site trying to get me to buy "antivirus software." I used an old email to register here just incase the virus is logging my keystokes. I am not an expert by any means on computers, so any help would be greatly appreciated.

thanks
