    I got this screen Saturday and after repeated attempts to close it, I was finally able to using the Task Manager. The device worked as usual but opening the internet kept bringing this screen up. It finally cleared and (knock on wood) hasn't appeared since then.

    I ran the full scan with Defender and nothing came up, then I used Malwarebytes and it found 4 items.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks much :)

    Just looks like a malicious/scam site... trying to get you to call them to extort money from you.

    What was the 4 things detected by malwarebytes... likely just cookies.

    Thanks GreyFox and leeshor.

    here are the 4 items found, and as you can probably see I was looking at some Windows 10 customization sites

    Those look like they may have been the problem.
