Answer
Don't know what kind of anti-virus program you are using, but I use AVG free http://www.filehippo.com/download_avg_antivirus/
What you have may not be a virus. It could just be a trojan. For that I would download, install, update, and run a scan with Malwarebytes http://www.filehippo.com/download_malwarebytes_anti_malware/
This should fix your problem. Let me know if it does not.
