How can I get rid of malware 'Win 7 Security 2012'?

12 years ago

My computer has been hijacked by a popup that purports to be "Win 7 Security 2012" and says that my computer has been infected by viruses and wants me to buy upgraded security to get it working again. It won't let me open any of my programs or go on the internet. I have tried restarting in "safe mode with networking" so I could run my antivirus program (Trend Micro) to try to isolate it and get rid of it but I've been unsuccessful in doing so. Can anyone help me with this?
