    You have rogue software on your PC this can prove hard to remove but there is free software avaliable to remove it.

    You need to download, update and scan your computer with Malwarebytes and SuperAntiSpyware, delete what ever they find, run SmitfraudFix if this fails to completely remove the infection, all the software below is completely free and safe to use.

    If your infection is proving very hard to remove download then update Avast and run a boot-scan (click schedule boot-scan and restart your PC).

    Once you have removed the infection download Avast and Comodo Pro firewall, then switch to Firefox 3 if you are browsing with IE this should stop the virus returning. (links on my profile)

    You will need to update & run your anti virus & anti spyware programs. If you need them, here’s some good links. Also, use Firefox instead of IE, much safer.
