Well, whereto start . . . The 'microsoft' patch message is false, but unsettling, they're trying to phish you, and should be reported. You have some infections, and I would start with a free 'Ewido' scan. Removal might prove more difficult, but the main AV sites provide removal tools, Symantec and Kaspersky, etc., once you know what they are called. I'd also try 'A2', which is a Trojan finder and remover, and 'Spybot Search and Destroy'. The finding probably won't be difficult, but removal may be. If problems persist perform a 'Hijack this log' and send it to the appropriate forum on this site.
