Hello forum experts, I hope you can help. I have a bleeping computer situation!

My machine is a Windows 7 Home Premium SP1. I was looking at Google Images (for pics of Bear Grylls), clicked on one, and Firefox immediately resized to approx 1" square. There was a brief indication of a fake security scan but was moving so fast I couldn't read it.

I've tried running Malwarebytes and Microsoft Malicious Software Removal -- they both freeze up the computer and I have to use the Power button to shut it down.

Please advise.
