You are infected with a variant of Smitfraud/FakeAlert and possibly Vundo.

Please do this to get help removing it:

Download HijackThis™ here:

Right click on it and choose "Run as Administrator". Click 'Do a System Scan and Save logfile'.
The HJT log will open in notepad.

Copy and paste the contents of the HJT log into a NEW TOPIC in "HijackThis Logs and Malware Removal"

Do not post you HJT log in this topic
