I had what sounds like this exact problem. 

I downloaded a free program from the internet called Malwarebytes from the internet to get rid of it.

I had to run it from "Safe Mode" to finally get rid of the malware.

Go to another computer and download program from SUPERANTISPYWARE
site onto a memory thumbnail.  Download program onto your computer
and run to remove.  It probably is not a virus but a scam to make
money.  Never ever reply to ANY ad that promises to clean your
computer.  Superantispyware is a free virus and malware remover that
works very well.  Update once a week to keep up with new problems
which usually come from China and Hungary.

I'm sorry to bother the group with this; but I've picked up a
computer virus that I had once before and someone helped me out.  I
thought I had saved that mail--but cannot locate.  I've got something
a virus that got through the Norton--it disguises itself with a
symbol just like Microsoft's security system--and keeps popping up
with dire warnings and then trys to get you to purchase
protection.....once before someone gave me very specific directions
on how to remove.  Can you help again????  "security breach!!!!" 
"system danger"
thanks a ton for any help.....right now it is even not allowing me to
do google searches...most sincerely  Michelle Horner
