I awoke this morning in horror as I found multiple internet sites open displaying Porn and a fake windows security message that keeps popping up. I constantly catch my brother looking at porn, and he also keeps download p2p file sharing programs such as; limewire or frostwire. I blocked most of the access to limewire, and he downloads frostwire, I have to uninstall those programs once a week.. I can't do a system restore or open any legit Anti Virus Programs. When I try to it says that the application can't be executed, that the .exe file is infected and asks if I want to activate my anti virus protection now.
I'm operating from a cheap ~300$ emachine that we've had for a little over one year.
Any help is greatly appreciated before this virus gets out of hand.

Edit* I have not tried accessing the system restore or any Anti-Virus programs in safe mode yet as I am in a hurry to get to school and I don't have the time at the moment.

EDIT: Moved from Vista to more appropriate Am I Infected forum ~ Hamluis.

I downloaded RKill and eliminated most of the malware.. Absolutely amazing product Bleeping Computer!


2nd time running RKill after a reboot:
C:\Users\darcie\AppData\Local\asam.exe
C:\Windows\system32\DllHost.exe
C:\Windows\system32\DllHost.exe
c:\Users\darcie\Downloads\rkill.com
