Several times in the last few weeks, a window has interrupted whatever I have been working on to say my Windows needs updating or my files will all be removed (plus a loud piercing noise), and a countdown of seconds. This message has some grammatical mistakes. I have simply closed the window, and another comes up saying 'Windows 10 PC Repair' inviting me to download a Repair Utility update to eliminate potential threats. I have closed down these windows and then have to close everything down to stop them reappearing, then after restart everything is OK. I assume this is a scam of some kind, but it is a bit scary. How can I stop this reoccurring. I pay for Norton protection. Help please!

Run an anti-malware scan.

If you've already got the free version of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware on you computer, run that. (I hesitate to recommend downloading it to people who've not already got it, as it comes with a free trial of the premium version, which seems to slow some computers to a crawl). Otherwise try AdwCleaner (which is also from Malwarebytes):

How can I tell if I have the Malware Bytes A-M on my computer already? I downloaded AdwCleaner on your advice recently, for another problem (thanks), but cant find a list of whats on my computer, is it under Settings or??. Thanks for your help.
AdwCleaner doesn't have an update facility, so you need to download it afresh whenever you want to use it.

If you've got Malwarebytes Anti-Malware on your computer, there will be a folder with that name when you go to Start > All Programs.

If you've not got MBAM on your computer but you'd like to have it (to save you having to download AdwCleaner each time), you can get it from here:

If you then find that the included trial of the premium version is slowing your computer (or if you're simply concerned that it might do so) you can disable the trial product by following the instructions here:
