This computer is giving me hell

Could not move around and do much of any thing cause of the Spyware/Malware in it.

I finally got it to update and run Ad aware SE and that free'ed it up enough for me to move around... Thing is I think this sucker is major infected with virus's also.

Every time i open a folder that has a copy of AVG.exe file to install it closes it.  When I go to download.com to AVG downlaod page it closes it.

Is there a BOOTABLE .iso I can get that will boot off cdrom and can the HDD for virus.. it is NTFS file format.
