You have a virus and it is the Windows Vista Security program. This form of extortion is called a Fake AV attack and it is a bear to get rid of. If deleted the program is reinstall itself. You have to boot the computer in safe mode clear the Program completely, including the registry to get rid of it. It also gets into the system restore so you will have to clear that as well. You may have to look into some sort of tool to remove it. I would rather give the money to somebody else than these thieves.
