So something, or maybe someone has taken control of my PC, all applications, all programs. I cannot even get to my add/remove section. Every time I try and delete everything that was recently changed today on my PC it just moves to a different location and says "Item cannot be found". Every time I do anything I get this "Security Warning" Application cannot be executed. The file "XXX.exe" is infected. Do you want to activate your antivirus software now? Then another is "Antivirus Software Alert" Infiltration alert.. Your computer is being attacked by an internet virus. It could be a password-stealing attack, trojan - dropper or similar." Like I was on Ventrilo and Facebook, perfectly fine, then someone on FB posted something from Drunktextmessages.com and that's when this happened.

Everything I go to open, files, programs, Security settings, Firewall, it will pop up and disappear immediately. Then even trying making programs administrator it doesn't work. Then when I try to DL the Anti-virus on this site (Geeks to go), it says "I am not authorized" like....wow Ctrl+Alt+Delete works until I go to start task manager and it pops up and disappears. It says everything I try to open is infected. I even took the risk of agreeing to "activate my antivirus software" and it sends me to a site on IE to purchase one of their 3 packages. As i'm typing now it continuously spams me with the alert, and constantly interrupts my typing with IE loading the antivirus they want me to pay for..... So is this a hacking system that they force u to go to purchase their stuff after they take your own PC from you? What can I do at this point when I can't install anything because "I don't have authoration"

I suggest you go to the Malware Removal and Spyware Removal Forum and run all the steps located in the
START HERE. These self-help tools will help you clean up 70% of problems on your own.
If you are still having problems after doing the steps, then please post the reguested logs in THAT forum.
If you are unable to run any of the tools then start a new topic in the malware forum and put this in the subject line...I am unable to run any malware tools

If you are still having problems after being given a clean bill of health from the malware expert, then please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).
