What is the name of the anti virus pop up? this will narrow down the steps to remove the virus. there are so many different ones. I would guess by your descriptions that it is anitvirus soft virus or clone of this.

Lindy,

Try rebooting into Safe Mode by rebooting the computer, and tapping "F8", if you have a flash drive or anything, please download Malware Bytes here: http://download.cnet.com/Malwarebyt...

Rename the file as "1234.exe" to try and avoid it from being disabled. Scan with that and let me know if it removes the infected files or not. Is Task Manager disabled at all?..
