Specs: Windows 7, core 2 duo/4
Everytime I open a new tab, everytime I open a program(attempt to open a program) I get the searchprotocolhost.exe is infected, would you like to turn on protection. Nothing will open on my computer. I type services into the search box and hit enter. Then it tells me that mmc.exe is infected, same message different file. This is ridiculous. I cant even open my virus protection programs. How do I fix this?

Safe Mode with Networking
Restart your computer.
After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, tap the F8 key continually;
Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu with options should appear;
Select Safe Mode with Networking, then press "Enter".
Choose your usual account.
