Computer Virus

Having some major problems with my computer. A small window popped up, stating something along the lines that my AVG was infected. ???

It says its a problem with Windows, and that Windows is trying to take care of it. I am terrible with computer technology and stuff, but I have Dell XP computer. Is that connected to windows? (Could possibly be a very stupid question).

Basically, I am thinking the virus protector thing is the virus. Happened on my old computer. I am going to shut her down for the night. Will check back later, but am worried to use this computer due to possibility of things screwing up. Will try to get on a laptop or something in the meantime.

Any advice appreciated until I get one of my family members to help, as they are relatively good with this kind of stuff.

I can vouch for Malwarebytes. I have used it and it does a good job of finding viruses and cleaning your computer. Also in the near future you may want to get some virus protection software. The university I am currently at offers us free Symantec virus protection software and it is pretty good. I switched to Microsoft Security Essentials half way through last year though, and I like it a little more. Microsoft Security Essentials is free. You can read about it and download it here-> I hope this is helpful.
