Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

I have a virus or spyware that has disabled Norton, and will not allow me to open Norton or scan using Norton. Additionally, unless I enter a direct URL, clicking on any link on any webpage will redirect me to a bogus webpage. It also disallows updates or installations - I cannot, therefore, download Spybot or any other such helpful program. Windows Updates will not go through. Adobe updates will not go through. I have a real mess on my hands.
