Not detected win erx

I have 'acquired' win erx03, which I believe came from an online ad. There is an on-screen message that there is a problem and to download an attachment - which I obviously didn't. McAfee is running full automatic protection, so why didn't McAfee detect it and why, when I manually run McAfee, does it neither detect nor remove it?

Re: Not detected win erx

Annoying malware, possibly ransome ware. Creates panic by turning on a very loud beep and running a countdown threat to destruction of data .

Here is the URL:

This is not removable by clearing out cookies etc. It is not being seen by McAfee scans.
