I got the virus. It shut down any processes I tried to open, including malwarebytes and control panel. No internet, either. It's obviously scareware: virus pretends that your computer is infected to scare you into buying a fake antivirus, when in reality the only virus is the fake antivirus itself. Nothing terribly harmful AFAIK.
How I fixed it:
-got to f8 menu
-started windows in "safe mode with networking" (should work with XP, vista (lol) and 7)
-downloaded a free scanner, malwarebytes is my favorite
-malwarebytes scanned for, found, and deleted the virus
You can also manually hunt down the files, but I don't really see a need to.
