So basically today I went on some random website (meebo.com) that I regularly use to chat. A few moments after that, some virus scanner comes up and begins to scan my computer. I quickly close it because I know it's probably some Spyware... but I think it was too late. Soon after all this other "antivirus" software began to start scanning on my computer and I quickly closed them all. But now about every four or five seconds a windows "Security Warning" pops up on my computer and tells me that I cannot execute an application--usually it's "wuauclt.exe" And an Antivirus software alert also pops up on the bottom right hand of my screen telling me that a trojan is attempting to infect my computer. Also, internet explorer windows pop up every couple of minutes attempting to open up viagra or other porno websites.
I've seen the rules for creating posts, but I absolutely cannot open any sort of application on my computer because every time I try to open an app, Security Warnings pop up on my computer telling me the application is infected and cannot be opened. I've already tried opening up Safe Mode and doing a virus scan there to no avail--hell I can't even open up minesweeper.
Please help. I use this computer to work and this is incredibly inconvenient.
edit: Flash, java and all the other plugins websites require to run do not work as well.
edit2: I've read through some threads on this site about the process in removing this spyware/virus and have downloaded rkill but I cannot run it; I've also tried SuperAntiSpyware and that cannot run when my computer is loaded either. However I've tried running it in Safe Mode and it did not detect anything.
edit3: Sorry I forgot to mention but these are my laptop's specs:
Windows Vista Home Basic running SP2
