How to remove fake "Security Center Alert"?

Recommended Posts

Hello all...

I'm new here, and don't really know what to post to give you all the information to help me fix this? A pop-up came up on my computer. When clicking the [X] (close) button another pop-up came up asking me to choose Okay or Cancel, so I click the [X] on that too...and it took me back to the first pop-up. Did this a good 15 times, but accidentally hit OK. Another pop-up then came up and labeled as "Security Center Alert" and there was a fake picture that it was scanning my drive...and then another pop-up said my computer was infected.

I couldn't get it to clock so I brought up the Task Manager and closed it that way. While Googling how to remove it some errors about some registry crashing came up, and then I got the Blue Screen Of Death. I can no longer boot up my PC in normal mode...I always get the BSOD where the Vista logo comes up...so I have to use Safe Mode with networking.

I did some Googling and found that Malwarebyte's is good for this kind of stuff. It wouldn't run until I renamed the .exe file. I also downloaded Kaspersky, but it wont install in safe mode (and read that you shouldn't install 2 anti-viruses at one time).

Sorry if I'm rambling...just trying to give as much detail so I can get this resolved quicker. ;.; Please help.
