HELP! ..this metropolitan virus! beginners advice

Hi folks, honesty is the key. Streamin your general porn as us males do.....a while later bang! I have a horrible message making me belive I've some how watched violence to woman or child porn.

It seems a well documented virus however I'm a complete novice with computers etc. I have windows 7, a free

Version of mcafee which is due to run out on 30th dec.

I understand asking for safe mode. I would like to know what exactly to download to start the process of removing this virus.

I have acsess to other pc's.

Once I have this software / anti virus on my pen drive and I prompt my laptop into "safemode"

At which point, and how do I include the pendrive with the above antivirus software?

Following, do I just press a button and the virus is irradicated or do I need to follow up with further precautions?

This is a well documented virus however all posts I've reviewd have expressions I don't fully follow.

I apologise for my ignorance and hope my honesty in how I was infected along with my clear lack of intulect with computers will summon a very lamans terms response.

Kind regards, A.

This has several links to tools I woulkd download and run fake alert stinger (note it is updated daily but you need to redownload it each day to get teh new update.

then try malwarebytes.( do not accept the free trial of the registered version it will clash with Mcafee) just use the free 1

All this if restoring to before the infection does not help.
