I got a virus, how do i stop it?

Posted

I went to this website which claimed that if you share a link to it every time someone clicks you get a point and say 8 clicks could get you a voucher for steam or roblox or something like that, this is a link to the site https://EpicCodes.com/ ?ref=853127 basically my malware states that it is a virus and that i need to pay them 65 dollars to get it fixed, i was wondering if someone at firefox could remove the site and any messages on the internet with the link to it, help remove my virus, and tell the other major browsers, thank you.
