    Windows Defender doesn't do this. The popup is coming from another program,
    probably one of the many rogue antispyware malware programs. See below for
    general information about this.

    *****
    Your system is infected with a rogue antivirus program. It is called "rogue"
    because it pretends to be A Good Guy but is really Evil. Do not pay them!

    Look for your malware removal steps here:

    These may work for you and all may be well. However, in many cases the
    computer will also be infected with Zlob and/or Vundo trojans and protected
    by a rootkit. These machines are extremely difficult to clean.

    If your machine is one of these cases, either get guided help at one of the
    specialty forums below OR back up your data and do a clean install of
    Windows. It is your choice. If you are unsure how to back up your data or
    how to do a clean install, you can take your machine to a local computer
    professional. I don't recommend using BigComputerStore/GeekSquad types of
    places.

    Windows Defender is free and doesn't pop up with any such message. If
    you are getting such a popup, it's from a different product, and you
    are *already* infected with it.
