I was trying to download a game and got this computer security scheme instead.  It is called internet security and does not allow me to open firefox, IE or any other program.  It says that they all have a virus and that, if I sign up for their service and pay them money, they can take care of it.  I have tried going into programs on my comp and deleting them but it does not show up on there.
 
Any help appreciated.
