Hello to everyone here at the bleeping computer community, I am new and consider myself somewhat decent with computers...still learning...but I have had a bad run in somewhere with malware or something else that is malicious. I keep getting these internet pop ups of false antivirus. It wants me to click ok so it can start downloading. When I saw this I went to the task manager and killed all internet explore applications running so they would not transfer. However, I guess something has still gotten through. I've tried running malware bytes and I am currently using avast and neither of the two detected any problems. And yes I have run these in safe mode when it will actually boot into safe mode. If anybody here could help me it would be much appreciated. Thank you.

The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.
