Can anyone assist with riding a family laptop of Spyware........?????

The computer is a Toshiba Satellite pro with windows vista, until recently everything was working fine but now a spyware virus has taken over the computer. This virus turns the main desktop screen blue with red and white writing stating "WARNING YOUR'VE IN DANGER YOUR COMPUTER IS INFECTED WITH SPYWARE" the message goes on and prompts you to buy a systems tool rectifier which runs a mock scan for you claiming your computer is infected.

When i try and run Malwarebytes anti malware scan the spyware stops this process claiming application can not be executed the file Tcrdmain.exe is infected and asks you to run your anti virus software.

After a short while the computer shuts its self down

Can anyone help and point me in the right direction
