Recently I had on my lap top a pop up that I could not remove without calling a telephone number. This turned out to be an anti-virus security company called McHelper. Has any one heard of this security system? I searched the web but can find nothing other than their own web site. I finished up paying a considerable amount of money to cure the problem. As they asked for US dollars I assume that is where they are based. I initially thought that they were connected to Microsoft windows but was mistaken

Dont know the company,but sounds like a scam to me,maybe you could have sorted it in this forum without paying a penny.
