Having problems with your Computer Utilities & Maintenance ?

My notebook PC has virus, can't download free anti-virus package.

\015 I have a Toshiba Satellite L305-S5921 notebook computer with Windows Vista Home Premium and am connected to Comcast high speed internet. After the anti-virus trial period ended (about 6 months), I wanted to download the free AVG, version 8.5 anti-virus software, and the PC would not allow the downloading of the software. The message was that I had a Trojan virus, and they only allowed the downloading of the expensive software they promoted. \015\012\015\012There was a suggestion that did not work. I went to the website http://www.housecall.trendmicro.com/uk/, and clicked on a link to allow a free scan. There I clicked on another link which stated \342\200\234click here for a free scan.\342\200\235 When I got there I tried to download the free scan, and my PC would not allow me to download the software. Instead, I got an error message, which was a window stating; \342\200\234Warning! Visiting this site may harm your computer. This website probably contains malicious software programs which can cause damage to your computer\342\200\246 We recommend you to install (or activate) antivirus security software.\342\200\235 It then gave me an option to do 1.continue unprotected, or 2. get security software.\015\012\015\012If I click on #1, the software throws me back to a previous website, and I keep getting the above message, and can not download the free scan. If I click on the #2, I am able to pay for the PC anti-virus software, for about $60 for one year.'' \015\012\015\012A new problem is that now when I start windows normally (not Safe mode), after loading, the screen goes black and I can\342\200\231t get a desktop.\015\012\015\012What should I do?\015
