    Install Malwarebytes and Spybot Search & Destroy.
    You might have to do everything, (install, update, scan, etc), in Safe Mode
    with Networking.
    All info below.
    And scan with your AV as well while there.

    Spybot Search & Destroy 1.6 is a very good, FREE Anti-Spyware Program.
    Download, install, update, and immunize your System with it.
    Then SCAN with it.
    Update it, and scan your System once a fortnight.

    Malwarebytes is as the name says, a Malware Remover!
    For the Free version scroll down their page to either download from, or Major

    Download, install, and update.

    Important re: Safe Mode
    If you happen to find a problem that you can’t uninstall / delete, reboot
    the computer, and go into Safe Mode.
    To get into Safe mode, tap F8 right at Power On / Startup, and use UP arrow
    key to get to Safe Mode from list of options, then hit ENTER.
    RESCAN your computer with your Anti-Virus, Malwarebytes and Spybot S & D
    while in Safe Mode.

    If unable to install above Programs in Normal Mode:
    Sometimes Trojans, Viruses, Malware, etc stop you installing and/or updating
    Programs to remove them.
    If that happens, reboot into Safe Mode with Networking, and install, update
    and scan from there.

    Your system is infected with a rogue antivirus program. It is called "rogue"
    because it pretends to be A Good Guy but is really Evil. Do not pay them!

    These may work for you and all may be well. However, in many cases the

    by a rootkit. These machines are extremely difficult to clean.

    If your machine is one of these cases, either get guided help at one of the
    specialty forums below OR back up your data and do a clean install of
    Windows. It is your choice. If you are unsure how to back up your data or
    how to do a clean install, you can take your machine to a local computer
