    I have noticed that you have multiple antivirus programs running.
    Avast
    McAfee

    You should decide which you want to keep and remove the others for the following reasons:
    • Multiple antivirus programs can cause conflicts that may leave the system more vulnerable.
    • Multiple antivirus programs can also slow down the system.

      If you are using a paid program, Consider removing the free programs. If you are using a Trial of a paid program, please decide which programs you would like to keep and remove the others. You will find the following removal tools helpful:
    • Avast Removal
    • McAfee Removal

      Download the Tool for the program you will NOT be keeping. Save it to your desktop. don't run yet.

      Note:Security programs are best removed while in Safe Mode. Download the removal tool and save to your desktop. Boot into Safe Mode
    • Restart your computer and start pressing the F8 key on your keyboard.
    • Select the Safe Mode option when the Windows Advanced Options menu appears, and then press ENTER on the setup you saved to the desktop and follow any onscreen prompts.
    • Double click
    Please reboot the system when you have made the change. .

    Your system is badly infected. Please change all of your passwords and monitor any online financial transactions.

    Go ahead and fix the AV problem. I am going to ask someone for help with this.

    Hey...thanks for replyng. I just downloaded Avast today. I'm not fond of Mcafee and will remove that one.

    This is a work computer. I will get back in front of it Sunday afternoon and will do as you have instructed.

    Thanks,

    If this is a work computer, the IT person should be helping you.

    This is a small business with a team of 9. I just happen to know the most about IT and that's not saying much.
