Solved There's a legal notice on my computer for watching Porn?

Specs: Windows XP
My half brother came over for a month, and asked to borrow my laptop for the time being. I gladly agreed. Two weeks later, he barged into my room telling me to look at the computer. There is now a law suit or something, with regulations of what he did wrong and what he broke, that states that we now have to pay a 300$ fine. It said something about being underaged to watch porn, or something like that. We quickly exited out, after reading that they watch us through the webcam and have video recording of him and me. It said I was viewed most in the camera, so I will be charged as well as he. We're both under 18, I'm 14 and he's 16. What should I do? What does this mean? He claims he didn't watch any child porn, so I don't know what to do. Are we going to go to jail for this? How can I avoid this? If I sludgehammer the computer will it get rid of the fine and we can get on with our lives? Thank you for reading.

It's a scam, but your computer is now infected & you're going to have a heck of a time getting rid of it. Exactly which infection do you have? Something like the one below?

It's going to keep popping up until you figure out how to remove it. Try AdwCleaner, Malwarebytes Antimalware, & CCleaner-Slim for starters. Run them from Safe Mode.

Unfortunately, the Internet is full of scams like this. But Government agencies, banks, etc. just don't act in this way.
