I could talk you through how to get rid of it but there are better things written and I don't know what you have. This is a symptom of a anti-virus spoof malware where it'll come up with security essentials or something saying it found stuff and ask you to remediate. If you're not very experienced with computers then you may want to backup your data and use the system restore discs. You may try going into safe mode and using system restore(if it'll let you), some of these will disable/corrupt safe mode however. Goodluck!!! m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
