For the past week my computer has this pop up that tells me that i need to update Security System, because it found like 38 new viruses, the problem is that i have McAfee anti-virus and i did a full scan, that only found one virus and it took care of it, but this System Security dosent want to go away i have tried everything and nothing seems to work. It tells me that it has found 38 new viruses that my system is at risk of crashing, i also get this message that tells me that a worm was blocked from accessing my system throug the internet. I downloaded Malwarebyte anti-malware but it didn't do anything for it. All i know is that is a virus and i have no idea how to get rid of it before is too late. Thank you in advance.

Click on the log name to highlight it.
Go to the bottom and click on Open.
The log should automatically open in notepad as a text file.
