What to do if my computer is infected by a virus or a malware?

First off i want to apologize in advance for my lack of computer knowledge. A virus just hit my laptop hard. I literally just ran out of my norton subscription today and my computer completely crashed. It wiped out everything on my laptop in nothing but a minute, i can't be on it for more than a couple seconds without having a million pop ups saying "your computer is in critical danger" Can someone at least tell me what this is?

I would run the following softwares to clean my computer: Malwarebytes, Superantispyware and Hitman Pro...all available virus-free at download.com.

A great resource for removal info is http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/

Their combofix is a very powerful tool that should be used as a last resource. It can render a computer unbootable depending on the virus type.

Thank you for the quick response. I just went on my laptop in safe mode with networking but everything time i try to open an internet browser i can't because its empty. What do i do? –  Rafael Galiano Jun 26 '11 at 16:30
@Rafael Galiano See if you can get those programs off a friend's computer and put them on a flash drive. Then try to run them in safe mode. Some may need to be installed in normal mode initially. –  KCotreau Jun 26 '11 at 16:34
Okay, Thank you. –  Rafael Galiano Jun 26 '11 at 16:37
