It sounds like you have the "Microsoft Essentials" virus. It is a virus that "pretends" to be a valid security product. "Microsoft Essentials" is just the latest name for it.
Turn off you computer to prevent further damage. Use someone elses' computer to make a bootable antivirus CD you can use on your computer to scan and remove the virus(es).
Here are the instructions and free download: http://www.avg.com/us-en/avg-rescue-cd

If you computer still has problem after removing the virus it means that the virus damaged some operating system files. If this is the case, Google "repair" "windows" and whatever version you are running like XP, Vista or 7.

Once you are running again you may want to avoid Microsoft Security Essentials. The real product is not a virus but is known to slow computers to a crawl. If you want a good free security product try AVG free, Avast free or Avira free editions. Here is a good resource for finding the best: http://www.av-comparatives.org/.

If this helps please vote for my solution.

You probably have some viruses and malware messing with you.

Start your PC and press F8 several times until the boot menu comes up. Then select "Safe Mode with Networking". Now get some or ALL of the FREE programs below.

Download, Install and Run Malwarebytes Anti-Malware:
http://majorgeeks.com/download.php?det=5756
When Installing choose the non-pro version.

Download, Unzip, Install and Run TDSSKiller:
http://majorgeeks.com/Kaspersky_TDSSKiller_d6895.html

Download, Install and Run Super Anti-Spyware:
http://majorgeeks.com/SUPERAntiSpyware_d5116.html

If you have an outdated Anti-virus program then Download, Install and Run Avira Anti-Virus:
http://majorgeeks.com/Avira_AntiVir_Personal_-_FREE_Antivirus_d955.html
Make sure to select ALL of the "threat categories" when you install or configure Avira...

You should be in pretty good shape if you run and install all of these programs.
