    "Attention!!! Your personal computer needs to install antivirus software! Personal Security can perform fast and free scan of your computer."

    This is first window.
    Then a page pops up showing my computer scanning and finding viruses.

    I keep closing the windows and it comes back.

    I went to a search engine to try to find a solution I could perform, and was redirected every time I clicked on a link. An ad came up for various off topic things, like shopping, or other things.

    This is happening both on our new laptop and our very old desktop, where it's worse.

    We have windows xp on the old desktop and windows 7 on this new laptop.

    I hope someone can assist me, and thank you in advance.
