I keep getting popups in my task bar saying 'windows security alert' telling me the computer is infected. However, upon clicking, it takes me to the AV security suite demo, then wants me to buy the product.

However, now I can't open anything. Ive tried clicking Spybot and Adware and the popups just say, application cannot be executed. File is infected. I tried downloading Malware bytes.. but after installation it too wouldnt open.

Might I be able to run these in safemode?

I dont know what to do. Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thank you.
