I seem to have a virus which purports to come from windows that suggests I have a virus and begins scanning my computer. It is click here
but when i search nothing comes up. I have Macaffee installed and it finds nothing...any ideas

Your click here does not work for me.
Maybe try Malwarebytes free version and see if that finds anything.

If you still have Exo-emyr Virus checker on your computer the best idea would be to remove all traces of it.

I cannot find it listed on my add/remove programs so am at a loss on how to remove it..could use CC I guess

Malwarebytes found it was KOOBFACE worm contracted from Facebook. My brother sent a loink through Facebook and as I couldnt open it I went on to the host site and BANG ! Virus Stupid me...so be warned facebook users. I hoppe it is gone now.....any more ideas or should Malwarebytes have removed it ? thanks Buteman !

[ should Malwarebytes have removed it]
It should have but there still maybe some traces left behind.
Maybe think about switching of System Restore and when you reboot switch it back on again.
Maybe run c cleaner if you have it. And Tools.Then delete browsing history.
