    I got a "privacy protection virus" that acts like it is running a scan on my computer. It tells me I am infected with viruses and prompts me to purchase protection. I closed it down but I get a warning message every time I try to open a program. I can't get into my task manager and can't get to the internet to download highjack this. I don't exactly know how to proceed from here. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
