Repeating popups with urgent messages that my computer is infected, directs me to click "Prevent attack" and immediately shuts down both IE & FF. It did get progressively worse over about six hours. Before internet blocking became immediate I was able to run DSS log and have a log file and an attach file. I should have saved the DSS program but clicked "run" instead.
I am communicating from a different computer. I have backed up my critical data but no programs or .exe files.
I appreciate ANY help!

Thanks for the quick response. I think I have good news. After posting I was looking around on your site and saw the virus removal link. Went there and found a complete procedure to remove Windows Safety Checkpoint. I followed the procedure and it seems to have worked! Removed 3 files, 1 registry agent and over 750 registry keys, all infected.
I also downloaded Secunia PSI and updated several programs.
But am I really ok now? Do I need to do anything else? What should I do or buy to prevent this from happening again?
Thanks!!!!

Reboot the PC in normal mode,run malwarebytes once again to make sure you get a clean log

Run the TDSSkiller and aswmbr and post the logs
