If you can, disconnect the network cable from your computer to stop the virus/trojan from getting to other systems. Let the virus software do it's thing. If you don't have any anti-virus software loaded or haven't renewed your subscription, get that done first. There's lots of sales going on right now and any anti-virus program is better than none. Sometimes it will take several passes to get all of it cleaned.

Cant update anything


You may be infected with a virus. THe conficker is the latest threat and it prevents you from accessing AV sites. Symantec has a removal tool for the conficker (aka downadup). You need somebody to put it on a CD, and then run the CD on your machine

This sounds like what is known as a rogue antivirus program. You computer is most likely not infected. This software when installed shows you fake threats and then tries to force you to purchase it to remove them. Download Malwarebytes Anti-malware from malwarebytes.org. Make sure it updates before you run it.

If you can't connect to the internet see if you can use another machine and a cd-r or a flash drive. 

After your run anti-malware run a good anti-virus scanner like avast as well.

Hope this helps.
