Your computer has Malware on it, update your antivirus program, if you don't have an AV you can download free antivirus programs such as Malwarebytes or AVG 2012

Follow this in EXACTLY the order listed:
1- rkill.exe

2- tdss killer
http://support.kaspersky.com/faq/?q...
3- Malwarebytes

If that doesn't fix the problem....try the same again IN SAFE MODE

I did the first two, then I restarted the computer, then the computer did a disk check and now it won't let me use my mouse or keyboard. I even tried safe mode and it didn't work.
