I was browsing emulator sites earlier on my laptop, a year old Toshiba Satellite L505 running Windows 7 home edition, when several administrator permission windows popped up, asking for permission to install a program I had not attempted to download. Fearing a virus attack, I shut down my system, and upon restart a window opened called "Antivirus Scan." The window has a blue header containing the program name and a sub-header saying "Protecting every second", There is a large link on the same line aligned to the right that says "Get Full Protection with Antivirus Scan."
Below the header is a gray-blue area comprised of 5 tabs, reading from left to right "Performing Scan", "Adjust Settings", "Get Updates", "Activate Now", and "Help&Support."
In the "Performing Scan" tab there is a white area listing several dozen "threats", the adjust settings tab has another link to activate the program, as does Get Updates, Activate Now, and Help&Support.
I am currently locked out of opening any program aside from Internet Explorer, as the "Antivirus Scan" blocks all other applications with a pop-up from my tool bar that says "Application cannot be executed. The file [insert file name here] is infected. Do you want to activate your antivirus software now?"
When clicking one of the "Activate Now" links an Internet Explorer windows opens up, but all extensions and add-ons are blocked. It takes me to a webpage located at http://afantispy.com/shop?abc=cGdp7D04JnI9ODQuMA
, but I cannot navigate to any other page from here.
Please advise. I can't even email over any specs from my laptop as I can't get into my email.
