i was wondering if this is an actual threat or simply the marketing method of all antivirus.. this keeps spamming every 3 or 5 minutes so i want to be sure because this antivirus doesnt give me an option to fix it , it just abort the connection to the infected thing and ask me to upgrade my protection... if anyone is familiar with that i would apreciate an advice.

oh and i just read the link you shared and sadly i have no way to buy a legitimate antivirus to make a full scan of my computer.. i was hoping that this antivirus was just trying to scare me by showing me a scary threat but i am still unsure about what this is about. also it is probably infected since for xamp to work fine i has to disable my computer UAC

This is why you don't disable UAC if you don't know what you're doing with your own computer, and why you don't blindly click Yes every time it pops up a message unless you know exactly what is you've asked it to do.
My first guess is you downloaded a bad version of XAMPP, or else it was something else you downloaded and ran.

Have you tried running the general malware removal tool that Microsoft regularly publishes?
