You may be a victim of a Rogue AV attack.  If that was the case, you unintentionally installed it by clicking the "X" button.  AV will not prevent it if you allow it to install--even by accident.  Is the malware in question asking you to purchase an AV Title?  Is it called System Tools 2010, 2011, Windows Tools 2011, Windows Cleaner, or any other title like that?
Do a google search for Rogue Antivirus.  Lots of info in this case.  Very hard to remove if you have never done it.  Requires a preboot environment repair often.
