Angry Virus restarting my computer.

Hey all.
I just got my internet connection at home and i have a virus problem. As soon as my internet got connected i recived a virus that is restarting my computer. I turn on my PC and after a few minutes it shows a 1 minute countdown till restart. I tried using an antivirus called AntiVir but it doesnt help. ZoneAlarm seems to stop it for a while but i only have the trial version of it and i dont have the money to pay for an antivirus. The virus gets into my computer as soon as i connect to the internet! So formating my HDD doesnt work.

Anyone had any problems like this?
I really need some help please.
