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!
