fakealert-antivirus Pro!hosts

How do I get rid of this fakealert-antivirus Pro!hosts ? I ran my McAfee scan and it did not find any viruses; however this fake alert continuously pops up on my computer.

Hello,

Our first suggestion is to scan your computer with MalwareBytes and one other good scanner to help detect most of the known malware on your computer. If you have already run these two tools and still have a problem, let us know and we can proceed from there.
