I'm getting a command that says I'm infected, put an icon on my desktop and wants me to run something called Antivirus 8. The computer is new and I haven't set up an anti-virus program yet. I tried to download one but couldn't access it. My OS (Windows 7) sent me a warning that Antivirus 8 wanted to make a change to my computer and I clicked the "No" button. Now I can't even open up the system, I just keep getting kicked out after putting in my password and before I see the desktop. I seem to be in a continuous loop.

Please Restart your computer and tap F8. When the Advanced boot options menu comes up, select "repair windows".

After the Recovery environment is loaded, select enter at the keyboard layout screen, provide logon details (or press enter if you have no password set) and then click the option Startup Repair.
Allow windows to perform a Startup Repair and when done see if you can reboot normally.

regards, Elise
