What you have there is a malicious software.

Here is what you can do. On another PC download the following tools onto a flash drive:

1) CCleaner - Download this from www.filehippo.com
2) Malwarebytes - Download this from www.malwarebytes.org

Install first the CCleaner then the Malwarebytes. Make sure to update malwarebytes. Run CCleaner first. Start Cleanup. Run Malwarebytes and do Standard Scan. Make sure to view all the found infections and delete or quarantine them all.

Restart the computer then update your spyweeper
