It's a fake antivirus program.

I've posted some general advice here: http://elliquiy.com/forums/index.php?topic=25435.0

But it probably deserves a more thorough discussion which I've been working on. If you run hijackthis, feel free to post a log.

If I had time I'd offer to walk you through removing : / You can probably find someone to help walk you through it, at least. Do you know how to boot into safe mode?

Whatever you do, though, don't pay the fee unless you want to give your credit card to criminals.
