Question about Computers & Internet
Check out download.com (by cnet). I recommend two free programs. Look for and download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 1.46 and also download Spybot Search & Destroy 1.62. Install both programs. Then make sure to check for updates and the latest virus definitions.
Reboot your computer and while it's beginning to boot up, press the F8 key to bring up the option to run the PC in "safe mode." Continue booting up the PC in safe mode. Run Malwarebytes first, choose the "quick scan" option. Use the program to elimate any threats found. It may require a reboot to complete the removal process. If so, reboot. After finishing with Malwarebytes, reboot PC again and once again enter safe mode. Run Spybot and when it's finished use the program to eliminate any threats it may find. Spybot may not be able to completely eliminate viruses active in memory and may ask you to let it run again on startup. If so, answer yes and reboot. After the scan(s), use the program to remove any of the threats.
You may also want to download AVG or Avast. They are also free (or at least have free versions) and are very popular.
Hope this helps.

Windows Security Agent checked Parallels Internet security and did not find Parallels Inc., in the list of known antiviral software vendors. This caused Windows Security Agent to consider Parallels Internet Security as a malware.
1. Go to Start -> Control Panel -> Security Center
2. Find Parallels Internet Security under the "Malware protection" section and click "Show me my available options"
3. You will see three options:
a) Search online for compatable Antivirus
b) Monitor Antivirus yourself
