Yes, this sounds like a serious virus infection.
Try this:
1. Download a free Antivirus program like Avast:
http://download.cnet.com/Avast-Free-Antivirus/3000-2239_4-10019223.html?part=dl-85737&subj=dl&tag=button
2. Your downloaded file will be "setup_av_free.exe".
3. Instead of opening the exe file as is, rename the file first. You can rename a file by selecting it then right click then choose "rename". For example, you can rename the file to "paris.exe" or whatever you want.
4. After renaming the file, you can now run and install it.
Note: Some viruses recognize antivirus programs because they know the installer file names. By renaming the installer file, you are tricking the virus into allowing you to install the antivirus application.

My antivirus wont activat on my laptop it was there before now it wontstart uporany other antivirus program


It sounds like you have a virus, a virus can disable your anti-virus and not allow you to install a new one.

You should either try to use-system restore, or a recovery disk,
or the recovery file that is placed on a partition of the hard drive.

Usually you have the windows disk, or the company puts a recovery file on a partition.

So, you can try these, or you can see if you can go online to Fsecure,
online and they have a free scanner , and this will remove any virus.

I bet you don;t have, G-Data, Avira, Avast ,Kaspersky, F-Secure, Norton 2009, Because if you did you would not have a problem,
these are the top anti-virus programs on the planet.
Eset,

If you have more questions just post back.

There seems to a problem with your win defender turn off defender and try to install the anti virus software as when you have one anti virus or a firewall running it will not allow another anti virus to be installed. Also check if you have any other anti virus installed
