Welcome to the Home Users Community, Robert Fleming-Jones!

The error message that you received is just a scam message so long as you do not call the number, your PC should be safe. These messages, by the way, are caused by adwares and mainly triggered by Potentially Unwanted Programs installed on your PC or extensions added on your Google Chrome browser.

For normal troubleshooting, please uninstall any unfamiliar programs added on your Programs and Features list. You can also remove unfamiliar Google Chrome extensions: 
- Click on the three-dotted icon at the upper right
- Click More Tools > Extensions

Also..checking here, there's an added Virus Removal Service on your purchase last 2/6/18. For that, you can call our Premium Support Hotline at 1 877 275 8611 Option 2 for remote assistance.

When you encounter the same message, please be sure to take a photo of it so that we can take note and have it reported on our end.

Feel free to leave us a reply to let us know what happens then. Thank you! :)
