    The thing that says the phone has a virus is adware. They want you to buy their app to "clean your phone". All you need is an anti-ad app like https://play.google.com/store/search?q=adware (I run AdWare, Malwarebytes and Avast - I still get ads in some apps, though, that's how developers get paid for free apps - developing a decent app isn't something you do on a rainy weekend, it takes months, so I don't begrudge them their ads - they're annoying, but so is paying for a few hundred apps).

    Make sure you didn't install any app that support adds and support write over apps adds.
    go to settings/apps and check right there if there is any app that seems to be Showing adds or something like that uninstal it.

    if this doesn't help then do a hard reset i'm sure it'll solve your problem.
