  1. 2 days ago i got a pop-up for windows security center 2010. it said i had like 700 infected files. i did not download their program because i don't trust downloading stuff, so i ran my symantec antivirus. but today when i got on my computer i could not go to any web sites. it took me about 35 tries to get to this one! keep getting the windows security center pop-up as well. when i do try to go to a web site i get a blank page that says this site is not trusted....download windows security center 2010...blah blah blah. can someone please help me because i clearly have a virus, worm or something :( and i keep getting that annoying pop-up!!!

    Windows Security Center 2010 is a scam
    Run Avira Antivir antivirus, and remove Symantec... or Run Avast
    Download and run SuperAntiSpyware and MalwareBytes, then cold Boot to SAFE MODE, and run Avira or Avast again, and then run Malware Bytes.
    Tell us what you find, or send us a copy of a HiJackThis log after running in SAFE MODE>
