Have seen similar one. Scan the PC with Malwarebytes and perform full scan. It was somehow in my IE browser and I managed to remove it by simply cleaning all the toolbars and history\cookies.

if he has norton 360 - update it and run a full scan
if it does not remove the virus , remove norton, and install another AV
scan also with mbam, as said : http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php                         MBAM
or even Roguekiller   http://majorgeeks.com/RogueKiller_d6983.html                  Roguekiller

It looked much worse than it really was. I ran Norton 360 and never saw it again! Ran MBAM just in case, it found nothing. I think it was just something to scare you into purchasing from them. The user coul dnot close out of the popups. Thanks!
