  2. Potential Malware?

    Hello - While updating my Mozilla browser yesterday the below link appeared and downloaded to my PC and the C prompt appeared with a progress monitor that went right to 100% then closed. Since then when I run the Microsoft Malware and Anti Virus protection
    a message now appears that my PC might have have malware or a potential virus but non are ever identified upon the scan completing. It does appear the scan (Both quick and full) are taking longer than prior to this download. Below is the link that appears
    in my download history. Any suggestions? Just trying to prevent my nice laptop from being ruined.

    Potential malware?

    I believe it is a scam. Do not call the number.

    What browser do you use. Select the upper right hand RED X to close the browser. Then open a new browser window or tab. (often right click and select the option)

    I'd suggest a virus scan and then malware scan using Malwarebytes free
