Try a restore point a day or so back.
try this in safe mode.
Then download stinger and malwarebytes and superantispyware to a usb stick on another PC,rename the files and install them on your suspect PC. When installing rename the folder the programs want to create so the malware cannot see the programs and stop them.
See if they find anything.
Any name on any popup message?

"Security Tool" and "File Backup" were at the top of the pop-ups. I tried restore, I couldn't remember the password to log in as administrator, I tried repairing, and I tried using the task manager to identify the virus to delete it. The whole thing kept crashing, no matter what I did. So I just pulled out the OS disk and erased the hard drive. Thanks for the response though.
You could have maybe dealt with this in 'Safe Mode with Networking" but we will never know. Glad you are OK. Now make sure you update everything, including any parts of your system that you may not use, important to prevent vulnerabilities.
