    This program that is telling you that you're infected with these is what's known as a smitfraud (fake/rogue security software). It isn't a virus but a very bad case of malware/scareware.Don't click on it any longer.Don't buy the program.

    You have a little work ahead of you so pay close attention:

    Go to and install the free version of Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware. Update the program and then shut your PC off. Then:

    1. At the top of your keyboard,look for key F8 and hold that down continually

    2 Restart your PC

    3 After it restarts,scroll in to Safe Mode and hit Enter on your keyboard and wait a few moments for

    it to start.

    4 answer the question appropriately to get into Safe Mode

    5 Once you're in Safe Mode,open Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware an run a complete scan.

    6.Remove what Malwarebytes' finds by moving it to quarantine.

    7.Then restart your PC normally.

    Also you can go to and find that smitfraud in the Uninstall List and see if there are any other removal instructions.

  • Download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and run a full scan of your computer.
