Comcast Constant Guard Errors?

Constant Guard notified me that i had many viruses but when i scanned with my anti-virus software(Microsoft Essentials) nothing came up, then an typing bug occurred and it was fixed by ending the program GIDD (or something similar to that) in task manager. I am wondering if this is an actual virus or just an error.

Update:

I uninstalled anything that had to do with comcast and now i am wondering if i should restart my computer to see if it is fixed?

Update 2:

Now Internet Explorer Development program is now saying i have viruses when i can confirm i do not and it wont let me have any sort of internet access and was wondering how i can delete or get rid of it.

Update 3:

Big thanks to you Casca Longinus. It seems to be working and i hope it continues to and again thanks.

    Run rkill, small executable, no need to install. READ THE DESCRIPTION. Delete after clean.

    After rkill has run successfully, then run a full scan with MBAM, it's free:

    Then a full scan with your AV.

    Microsoft Safety Scanner

    So you think your PC has a virus? The Microsoft Safety Scanner is a free downloadable security tool that provides on-demand scanning and helps remove viruses, spyware, and other malicious software. It works with your existing antivirus software.

    Note: The Microsoft Safety Scanner expires 10 days after being downloaded. To rerun a scan with the latest anti-malware definitions, download and run the Microsoft Safety Scanner again.

    The Microsoft Safety Scanner is not a replacement for using an antivirus software program that provides ongoing protection.

    For real-time protection that helps to guard your home or small business PCs against viruses, spyware, and other malicious software, download Microsoft Security Essentials.

    Hello, Install Norton security suite that you download off constant guard. Remove microsoft security essentials first then install Norton. Once norton is installed then uninstall constant guard. Constant guard just remembers your login information stuff like that otherwise it's useless.
