Try downloading Malwarebytes Anti-Malware program, updating it, and doing a complete computer scan.

Also get SUPERantispyware download it update it and do a full computer scan after malwarebytes has finished.

For best results, do this in safe mode and turn off System Restore.

To start your computer in safe mode, click "restart computer" and push f8 repeatedly while the system is booting up, you can either chose safe mode, or safe mode with networking (internet access).

Links to download the programs I have suggested.

i already had malware bytes updated and everything. when the popups started happening i scanned with malware bytes then restarted for the virus to be deleted. thats when the restarting started to happen. even when i choose safemode or any other choices after pressing f8 it just keeps restarting. im thinking i'll probobly have to get a reformat but i dont have a windows disk and i have alot of files on my computer so im trying out all my choices first

To see what the error was you can change the default behavior by right clicking on “My Computer” and choosing “Properties”. Goto the “Advanced” Tab and under “Startup and Recovery” press the “Settings” button.

Under the “System Failure” box there will be a checkbox saying “Automatically Restart”. Untick this box and click Ok.

After you've done this, Try booting into safe mode with networking updating Malwarebytes, superantispyware and running some scans. Also make sure you turn off System Restore as this can contain virus fragments and can help re-introduce them into your system.
