    Hey, I assume you've gone on a website which had pop-ups and has caused a virus on your computer.

    Here's what I would advise you to do:
    1. Back-up all files on your computer
    2. Use a internet security software (e.g. Norton, McAfee, AVG) to scan your computer
    3. Once the item is detected delete it
    4. If it doesn't delete you should do system restore on your computer (make sure you back-up all files before you do this).
    Hope this helps!

    Thanks, guys!

    I did some stuff and it seems to have gone. It's stopped popping up, so hopefully it'll stay that way.

    errdoesnt that just say its malware bytes blocking a site rather than saying you have a virus?


    Update and run malware bytes= for malware hence the name.

    If you wnat a virus killer then install update and run a free virus killer something like avast free is fine
