Hijacked by PAV virus, what to do?

Heres the deal the brilliant people at my job decided they should download and pay for the Personal AntiVirus protection, which isnt protection at all. so other then pop ups saying more and more trojans and spyware have infiltrated the computer. the computer seems to be completely hijacked from the moment it is turned on. and when looking in the computer info it shows not only the c drive info, but also the (h) drive saying that its using 2 gb out of for and when clicked it talks about the partition having recovery info and after that does nothing. My thought is that this has taken over cossidering it wont allow me to see any files. it does not allow the abilty to search instead it comes up with the screen saying its dangerous basically virus pop ups keep popping up cant go into safe mode... when changed to diagnostic mode it just changes itself back when computer is restarted cant access flash drive that holds programs to remove like malwarebytes (read someone it would remove the person anti virus) Any ideas or is the computer just screwed and needs a system recovery? whats its also doing is blocking traffic it blocks me from being able to download the program... i atempted to bring it over from another computer through my thumb drive but it wont read the drive and shows that there is no hardware attached
