My computer got this virus called Security Master AV its this fake anti-spyware software that keeps sending me messages saying that i have 20 infected files, that my computer is infected with trojans, and is at risk of identity theft. It says if u pay u, u can remove the virus, but I found out on the net that this is a scam. I googled how to remove this security master av, and i downloaded spyware doctor and everything, but now everytime i try to open the program it wont open, and I can`t open any other programs that can help remove it either, even task manager! I think the security master is stopping it. It sucks too that I just bought the Mcaffe total protection and now it wont work.Please help me I really want to remove this fake anti-spyware software, and make sure my computer doesn't get ruined since I just got it.

Hey buddy

SInce you mentioned you were infected with virus, why you download spyware doctor to deal with this? It is designed for spyware, so you should hurry to downloard AVAST, AVIRA or AVG to try to kill this virus

And I notice that you can not open your programs even the task manager, I think your pc is severely infected, may be you have to reinstall your system.
