Windows 7: My PC is infected!

My PC is infected!

I've tried to find these things and delete them.
But I have at least two I can't get rid of.

One of them is a "PC CLeaner"

Another is some problem in ITunes saying its not for my new W-7....but it always was good till this other thing came along.

The PC is doing something else when I want to search. Or type.
It's lots worse with FireFox. It keeps telling me to get the latest FF Download.

I'd bet I'm not the only guy on thses boards that would go to prison for what I'd do to one of those Virus writers if I ever had some time with him.

I hope somebody can help.

Nope you're not the only one. Try running this : Junkware Removal Tool Download

I go to Cullman every year by the way.

I started the AVG (which I already had) and this came up almost forcing me to run it.:

Don't run that!

I don't know what it is but I cant get rid of it.

I think I tried them all at the same time.
It's after my bedtime. Doc and Therapy to morrow. I'll be back after that.

I'm still stuck with something that wants to clean my PC.

Yes. During the years of IE6 we used Norton. It was regularly finding viruses/malware until we switched to Firefox. We switched to AVG. It found at least one threat my dad had downloaded. We tried ESET and I downloaded a program that 1000s had downloaded and a few said it was clean. It seemed to...
