I have looked up every solution, and none of them have worked. with the regedit.exe changing exe to .com and all sorts of ridiculous things, and my computer will not let me open a thing. i get a window that pops up that says Windows Security Alert & whatever program i'm trying to open is infected. it says to click on it to get my antispywear to open and then an Anitspywear Soft program pops up and is telling me to pay all this money to download it and i can't afford any of that. i need a free, fix and i need one fast. i work off of my computer, and i'm already broke as it is doing my job from my computer. without my computer, i have no money at all! could anyone please help me, and walk me through this, i'm not much of a computer person. someone please help!!!
