Spoof Anti Virus portection starts when I start windows 7 and disables every function

Whenever I boot up my Windows 7 PC I automatically get a bogus virus protection and virus utility program to start to run. I can't run anything on the machine nor can I remove the software. I have gone into the msconfig and disabled everything there is on the startup.

Any suggestions?

Boot computer in safe mode with networking and install malwarebytes and run a scan

Remove virus and then boot in normal mode..in normal mode run a scan again.

How can I find the startup folder?
C:\Users\<user name>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup.

All Users startup folder should be C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup
