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

Last Modified: 2012-05-12
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?
