This morning my screen went black except for a icon called System Repair. It asked to check my system. The message svchost.exe Corrupt Disk appeared. It then sent me to a site which asked me to pay to get all this repaired.
Is this a scam? And what should I do?
Manynthanks for your help !

Sounds like a scam. 

 

Have you run anything to scan your system yet?
