Somehow an antivirus company Called "Anti Virus Protection" uninvitingly downloaded its antivirus program on my computer. Since then I haven't been able to do anything on my computer. I can't get on the internet, I can't open up my antivirus program to erase it.I can't open up anything. When I try to this rogue antivrus pops up saying the file is infected and it wants me to purchase its' antivirus software. I've tried to use system restore to cancel it out but this thing won't allow it to run. Is there any help available with removing this virus from my computer. I sure would appreciate it.
Thanks James
