Try running the free version of Malwarebytes click here and delete everything it finds.

click here Download, Update and run Malwarebytes

Close run thing, at least we both suggest the same thing.

It's more likely to be malware than a virus, which is why AVG doesn't pick it up.

ive clicked where it it says click here states no web page named malwarebytes

Try Googling for Malwarebytes - then I guess you'll have to press the back button a couple of times to find the site.

Your Firewall shouldn't stop it, but try turning it off and then update
