last night went on my computer only to find a fake anti virus window running and saying it was scanning. The window then showed that it had found several things and was still scanning. Windows said that there was spywar at the bottom right hand corner and when i went to click the balloon it changed to another one which brought me back to the antivirus. It also showed up in my bottom right hand doc as a blue circle. I cannot open taskmgr because it says that it has been disabled or cant run the exe file. I then rebooted only to find the desktop background changed to and blue screen with warning you have been infected all over it. I then tried to scan in safe mode with avg, ad aware and spybot and right before they are done scanning the computer shuts down as if it was unplugged. I do not know what to do at this point. Please help.
