Windows Security Alert is actually the malware - do not click it or download anything it asks you to.

Download, install and run Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. Fix any issues it finds, and then immediately reboot your PC. After this is done, I would run the program again to verify you are clean. If you still have issues let us know.
