  1. the edge just got hijacked


    i am using chrome right now
    but earlier i was working with edge and went to find something thru Bing
    and the next thing i know is that this blue screen comes up saying to dial this 844#
    and prevent any further problems with ordering online or working on thru the internet

    i ran Kaspersky it found nothing and ran Ad-Aware it found nothing

    any help here would be very great

    :)
