I'd agree with ZEROGX here's the AVG link: http://free.avg.com/
But also get your OS updated, I assume it's Windows so go to Microsoft looking for updates & service packs.

If you know what is infecting your computer, you could get a live Linux disk and boot from the disk, find the virus and erase it. I recommend Puppy Linux, it's really small and runs in Ram.

NOTE TOO: If it's the _ad_ which is telling you that you're infected, it may be lying to you.

You could look at Avast! by alwil software. I replaced AVG with this and it works very well, I also found it to be faster than AVG.
