In order to fix the problem you will need to update the antivirus and its database. To do that, navigate to the official web page and download and install the latest version of the program. Alternatively, you can download and install only the latest updates manually from Microsoft Download Center: 32bit and 64bit. If you still have viruses on your computer, try using another security program from Software Informer database.
