Random viruses | win 7 antivirus 2013?

Hey,

So last night I was watching One Piece on Watch One Piece Episode 399 English Subbed - WatchOP.com. After I watched the episode, Google Chrome ends all my processes (facebook, wtfteam, and that One Piece site listed above) and a pop up window says I have viruses in my computer, and that I need to get a registered copy if Windows 7 Antivirus Plus 2013 to get rid of the viruses I seemed to have just obtained. What scared me the most is that whatever trial program of Win 7 Antivirus Plus 2013 I had installed on there, prevented me from accessing any of my programs, browsers, even men, skype, and ccleaner. The reason was that the pop up window said was that the programs could get Internet viruses by opening the program. Even after I said continue opening the program, it still didn't open.

Practically my computer...can't be used to open any programs at all. I do have a Norton Security product to use, but I didn't bother touch it because I was using MS Security Essentials, and nothing seemed to go wrong while using it.

I'm kind of frightened at what I should do, if I can even do anything. I'm accessing the Internet through the use of my Kindle Fire. Please help?

Regards,
~CN-'

Thanks, but instead of malwarebytes, can I use MS Security Essentials? Or Norton 360 that I can install on my computer?
