Last night I went to a website and a bunch of pop-ups starting coming up and then my computer starting acting weird. My antivirus program (Avira) said it found an infection and I chose to deny access to these programs.

I though I was done with the issue and was running a scan to be sure, when another program opened and said it was scanning my computer, but I have never seen this program before. I think it was some sort of malicious program in disguise.

I shut my computer down and restarted in safe mode, then ran Avira again. It found no infection. I shut the computer down, hoping my problems were solved and went to check today to be sure. I wanted to start my computer in safe mode and run the system recovery so I could restore from an earlier point, just to be sure, but it will not let me start in safe mode anymore. Every time I push F8 it just makes a beeping noise and starts regularly. I tried using the regular mode to run the system recovery, but whatever malicious thing I have is not letting me run it.

What can I do to get rid of this? I am using a different computer because I can barely use anything on the infected computer...

Thanks for your help!
