I keep getting these Fake "Windows Security Alert" pop-up, pornographic desktop icons.

We had this type of virus last year but did not keep the directions.

It keep coming up with Windows Security Alert I need to buy because I am not protested.
It also keeps adding 3 porn icons to my desktop after I reboot, even though I have deleted them.

Please tell me how to get rid of it.

I have McAfee. but this doesn't help.

First try logging on to yoru compute ri nSafe Mode. To do this, reboot the compuetr and keep pressing the F8 key until you see a black screen come up. On that screen you will see several options; you will want to select Safe Mode with Networking.

Once you are logged in you will want to get online and get two tools; Malwarebytes and SUPERAntiSpyware. Here are links:
1. http://www.malwarebytes.org
2. http://www.superantispyware.com

Get those installed and run the scans. After they complete get rid of what they find and reboot in the normal mode. Run the scans again and you should be all set.
