    DO NOT PUT YOUR CREDIT CARD DETAILS IN.

    you dont have a virus, this is just trying to scare you into buying the product.

    restart your Mac in safe mode, and delete "MACDefender" or whatever its called, from your start up items, and from your applications folder. Use "Appzapper" to uninstall the program properly.

    never put your password into something you dont know.

    the program is the virus.

    it is redirecting you to porn sites to convince you that you have one.

    boot up while holding shift. this will boot into safe mode. then delete "MacGuard from your applications folder and your startup items.

    AppZapper - The uninstaller Apple forgot.

    use this, and it will delete any extra associated files linked to MacGuard.
