Ok well it seems i have a virus. The last thing i did was type in "how did stahp meme come about" in google and clicked a link then looked at the site and exited it. Now my computer is pooped i have this thing called "System Progressive Protection 3.7.6" that installed itself as a fake anti virus. it lets me on some websites but when i try see how to remove it on google it wont let me. is there anything that i can do or do i have to re install indows 7 .
if this isnt in the right spot please move
Can you uninstall it the normal way? Control Panel -> Programs and Features. What operating system do you have?
i ngot windows 7 i think i fixed it using this video.

i just dont get how clicking on a website link can get me a virus? i didnt chose to download anything
i can go on the net alright now (before when i had it it would say this wesbite is nsecure and wouldnt let me on) but my mcafe firewall auto turns itself off when i click off it.
Edit: is ther a way i can avoid this apart from going on stupid sites?
Another way is to install malwarebytes in safe mode and run it once your computer is booted up.
Great program, saved me a few times.

I would go the whole hog. Combofix to begin with in safe mode and then malwarebytes. Combofix is a pretty intensive virus removal software and has saved computers from the brink of reinstalls a few times for me.
Most modern virus's and malware can infiltrate your system in the subtlest ways.
A good AntiVirus program and smart browsing are generally the only ways to avoid a threat.
There's nothing guaranteed because developers of virus's find a way around anything built to stop it and vice versa.

FYI - i just looked it up - interested aswell - Stahp | Know Your Meme
The word “stahp” is an intentionally misspelled phonetic transcription of the word “stop,” which was introduced earlier in August 2011 through Stawp it, Rahn, another image macro series that pokes fun at the MTV’s Jersey Shore cast member Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola’s accent (shown below, left). The earliest known captioned instance of the series based on a photograph of a scornful-looking dog (shown below, right) was uploaded by Tumblr user jmiliam on March 18th, 2012. Within six months, the post received over 124,300 notes.]

Combofix is the best thing known to man, as Wraith said start in safe mode and run Combofix & MW Bytes
