Your system is infected with a rogue antivirus program. It is called "rogue"
because it pretends to be A Good Guy but is really Evil. Do not pay them!

In most cases, the computer will also be infected with Zlob and/or Vundo
trojans and protected by a rootkit. These machines are extremely difficult
to clean.

Either get guided help at one of the specialty forums below OR back up your
data and do a clean install of Windows. It is your choice. If you are
unsure how to back up your data or how to do a clean install, you can take
your machine to a local computer professional. I don't recommend using
BigComputerStore/GeekSquad types of places.
