I would add photos of what it says but it won't let me.

It's telling me that I have illegal content on my phone yet I don't to my knowledge, and I can leave the screen that it is locked on to check.

I just think it a virus but it will not let me check for viruses.

I have tried restarting it and removing the battery as that's all that it is letting me do.

    Give us the screenshots? Which Android version are you using? Is the Android rooted? – Firelord Dec 2 '15 at 4:21

    Sounds like Ransomware to me. Afraid you've got to factory-reset to get rid of that. Installed any thing from "other sources" lately? Or clicked some "urgent banners" (fake WhatsApp update, "you've-got-a-virus-click-here-to-fix" stuff, or the like)? – Izzy Dec 2 '15 at 6:23
