    None of the security software are 100% effective because malware authors are working hard to pass the defenses or trick people to let malware install. The malware that has infected your system is of morphing type. This may arrive to your system through web-site usually an ad. When you receive a fake pop-up then perform the below things:
    Press ctrl+Alt+Del and this will open task manager. Kill all the instances of web-browser such as iexplorer.exe. Go to Control panel/Internet and delete all cookies and Internet files.
    After performing this do s full scanning of your system.
