Hi there and welcome Carol

First, please do not call the number, it is a scam and its usually only a web page and not an infection. Its basically a trick to get you to call, they ask for your credit card and a large payment to remove it, nothing happens and you have to pay more. It is very good they did not answer.

Now first, where exactly is this page appearing? In your web browser? And which one?
