How do I uninstall this crap? It won't let me into its site. I downloaded a tool from Microsoft to scan my pc. Any ideas?

Download and install Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. Run a scan and see if it detects it.

Personal Anti-virus. It's one of those fake anti-virus malware programs.

I'd like for the OP to confirm, please.

Based on where this question is posted...it could be many things.
