Your PC is infected with a fake antivirus.
The first thing to try is Malwarebytes

update it and run a quick scan removing all it finds

you already started a post about this awhile back.

Why did you not post back saying it was not fixed yet?
If the problem was removed by the tools and the box is still there, then click the start button and type msconfig in the box.
Click on the start up tab, uncheck everything except your anti-virus and your task scheduler. Then reboot and the box should be gone.
