Last night I walked away from my computer for a few minutes and when I came back this Antiviru ad thing was on my computer saying that it was infected. Then when I clicked on it to try to remove it nothing happened, it just told me to buy this ridculous stuff on internet explorer that I don't use. So I knew it was fake, but then it started blocking the programs on my computer and internet explorer kept coming up along with balloons saying my computer was infected. I tried Malwarebytes twice, quick scan and full scan but that didn't work. Right now I'm trying super antispyware, but I don't have hope that will work either.
Please help! I need this fixed asap!

Try running RKill to stop the rogue from blocking malwarebytes before running malwarebytes.

Try looking here for a self-help solution, or post in the appropriate Security sub-forum on this site for more expert help.
