Answers :

It sounds like a fake warning alright. You should have a professional check it out. Malware removal is best done by a pro because often unwanted side-effects show up after removal, such as disabled network access. If you feel confident about fixing it yourself, try downloading the free version of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware from http://www.malwarebytes.org/. Perform the Quick Scan. This will take a few minutes. If it finds anything, then follow the prompts to fix it. Reboot if prompted to do so. Then also follow up with Perform Deep Scan afterward to double-check that everything got removed. Deep Scan can take much longer (hours). This should work. I suggest it with the best intentions, but if other problems arise, I disclaim any responsibility.
