Sir,
During surfing internet I have visited some website having free crack
programmes, after that my computer desktop got covered with a black screen
having some warning messages that my computer is infected with virus, a red
icon in notification area always popping up and on clicking it goes to a
site"www.antivirus-gold.com" I also cannot open google .com search pages.
Please help me out.

Hi

If you visit 'crack' sites, you can expect viruses to infect your system.
Try an online virus check of your system:

Stop pirating software for starters. People work long and hard to code,
stealing is a crime. That aside?
