    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 http://www.malwarebytes.org/ 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 http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/ 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.

    The most typical software removal method is to remove Antivirus 7 by using "Add or Remove Programs" service. However there may be hidden Antivirus 7 files, running processes and registries in your computer, so Antivirus 7 may recreate all other files after reboot.
