There are a whole new series of bad worms that prevent the accurate download of malwarebytes, and AVG. You know you have it if your computer starts shouting at you Yes, it will cause audible, invisible pop ups.

If you have trouble installing, you need a rootkit cleaner, and those can be complicated.

If it is a 'ton', reformat and reinstall.

If it is a 'few' you can probably clean, but some nasties take a lot of effort to completely eliminate.

There is also ComboFix. But use that only if the others do not work.

Then buy a box of Durex and place them over your screen and keyboard and mouse to prevent further infections.

Windows Defender is not an antivirus program. You would probably do well to download Malwarebytes and use that.

I recommend AVG Free for virus protection.

There is an add popup that will look like you just opened up "My Computer" and it will say all your drives are infected then attempt to run a setup.exe file.
