    Potential Ransomware


    Hello...


    For about the sixth time in as many months, I have clicked on a story to read off my homepage

    at MSN.COM. I'm running Windows 10 and using Edge.

    While reading the story a big red sinister looking window pops up with all kinds

    of dire warnings, trying to get me to click a button and/or call a number.


    Having gone through this exercise before, I immediately power down my laptop and reboot.

    I then use the bottom search bar and go to a safe website like Yahoo.com and after that page

    loads I use my browser settings to clear everything and anything and then reboot. When loading

    Edge again, the bad page is then gone.


    My question is how can the MSN network allow these bad pages to be loaded for consumer consumption

    and why didn't my Malwarebytes prevent it from loading ?


    After rebooting the 2nd time I scanned with Malwarebytes and came up empty.


    Thanks


    John

    :)

    Oh.

    I see that a Community Moderator converted your thread from a Discussion to a Question.

    Do you have a question?

    It is not quite clear (to me at least) why you've created this thread....

    In case that you do indeed have a problem with ransomware:

    It would be helpful if you would describe your problem more precisely, see:
    Suggestions for asking a question on help forums


    Without knowing more details, suggestion to read/do:

    Try to identify with what Ransomware you're dealing here:
    https://id-ransomware.malwarehunterteam.com/index.php


    and read/follow this guide:
    How to remove ransomware the right way: A step-by-step guide


    Also: See the pinned threads here:
