What can I do to defend my computer from these threats?


My computer keeps telling me that I have several threats and viruses... it has disabled my Microsoft Word, Excel, paint, etc. I cannot afford to take it to someone, but I need to get it fixed asap! I need it because I am trying to start a business from home. Please let me know if you can help with some pointers.
