You are the victim of a fake anti-malware attack. Is there a name for the application they are trying to persuade you to use?
Install the FREE version of THIS software, update it, and then run a full scan. Let it remove anything it finds and reboot immediately if asked to.
If for some reason this malware prevents the installation, try using right-click, "Save as" and save the installer to your desktop renaming it in the process to something like 12345.exe or similar.
the pop-ups were just titled Anti Virus, but the layout was very much like McAfee
Problem now solved, many thanks for your help, much appreciated.
I thought so, thanks. That's great, good luck.
Peter, thanks so much for your advice.
I installed the software advised and it found alot of malware which I didn't know existed. (Husband clicked some spoof virus alert which infected my laptop with something which stopped my mcafee software!) After the scan and deletion of files (shocked at how many!) I could reinstall mcafee and it's working ok again!
Thanks you really saved the day!
Glad to have helped.
