Virus on my pc

Specs: XP Home
I seem to have a virus on my pc.
No matter what i try to run (program) or if I try to open a browser window I get a balloon box that says the executable program for anything I try to start is infected and wont run it. But if I click on the balloon box a so called "anti virus" will appear to run. But it is not my anti virus that is running.
I cant do a virus check for this reason. I cant even uninstall my AV to reinstall it because it says its infected and wont run the app.
What can I do here?
Multiple icons will pop up in my try if I let it go on for too long.

Firstly disconnecct your computer from external network, if connected. Save the setup files necessary of Anti-Virus and other application in a Pen-Drive. You may need to install during follwoing steps.
1.) Log on yo your computer in safemode. Make sure that you are not connected to any Network. (Even internet)
2.) Now you can unistall the AV. And reinstall it. (I recommend to go for Bitdefender or Avast free version)
3.) Clean your machine with AV.
4.) After, clean your machine using the follwing applications:-
>Removeit pro
>Hitman pro
>Trojan remover (Still in safe mode)
5.) Once you done with cleaning your machine, Run CCleaner to remove all temporary files.

Thank you :)
