When I google Vista 2012 Internet Security, the results are similar to what I believe my computer is infected with. A window will pop up labeled as Vista 2012 Internet Security saying that it has detected infections on my computer and is highly recommended that I purchase the full version of this so called "internet security." Along with that, everytime I try to open a program, a window pops up that says it's been infected and asks me to either stop and download/purchase the protection or continue unprotected. No matter what I am unable to open a program. Little notifications will pop up as well warning me of the infection, spyware, etc. I tried running it in safe mode and using Malwarbytes to find and get rid of the thing, but after running it and deleteing the one infection found, I restarted my computer and it was still there. I tried running Malwarbytes again (which was hard to do since it is a program that the virus tried to block me from using) and soon stopped the scan and shutdown my computer because a new pop-up was saying "Critical System Alert p2p.worm.win32.franvir Do you want to block this attack?" I didn't want to let it mess my computer up anymore so I have not turned my computer back on since then, I am using a friends computer for now to try to figure out what to do. I am hoping that I won't have to bring it in to Geek Squad or something, so I would be thankful for any help!

Hello and welcome.

Please follow our Removal Guide here (Uninstall Guide) .

After you completed that, post your scan log here,let me know how things are.
The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply. Be sure to post the complete log to include the top portion which shows MBAM's database version and your operating system.
