Welcome to BC!
It appears that you are infected. A lot of malware will tell you it has found invections and that you must purchase some brand of software to get rid of it.
Your first step is obviously to NOT install that program or even follow the links the warning provides.
You second step is to post the EXACT MESSAGE that pops up in the warning window in the AM I INFECTED? Forum, where our Members can help you get rid of it.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
