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.

Have the same problem.  McAfee Total Protection not detecting it so of course, not fixing it either.
