Default I have a HUGE problem.

Alrighty, thanks for the help freestyler, it worked. I totally didn't know that you should boot in safe mode if you want to run scans effectively. I would give you rep, but it seems yours is maxed lol

Boot to safe mode and run full antivirus and antispyware scans.

I can't access that page, the virus/spyware/whatever it is, blocks it, but I'll do that as soon as I finish the current scan.

That page just shows how to boot to safe mode if you don't know.

A virus scan not in safe mode is worthless. The virus can easily be hiding itself from the scan.
