What program?

Here on the forums they suggest these..

Malwarebytes.org
SuperAntiSpyware (google this)

This sound like you have a virus now..

I suggest you head over to the Spyware Removal section (top tab on web page) to locate the name of the software that wants money for free scan. Some legit do this to but they usually clean 20 to 100 errors.

Hello, Although papas tool suggestions are good they are not AV's. You should run both of them after you install and run This AV. Go here install and run AntiVir,, First one on the page.

Post all three logs in this topic. I will move it later

MBAM and SAS can also be found in that link under Malware Removal

How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook

SAS is not an AV?

I really thought it was..

So AVG or AntiVir..
I will check link after I leave this question.
