If you've ever seen one of these on your screen, DO NOT CALL THE NUMBER!
These screens that pop up on your computer while you're browsing the internet are scams. If you call the number, someone will want access to your computer and your bank information or credit card. This is how Identities get stolen and people lose a lot of cash. Not to mention creating a serious issue on your computer that will need to be remedied at your cost.
The best thing to do is use Alt+F4 to close the window down. Then disconnect your internet access whether it be WiFi or Ethernet. You can disconnect your WiFi in Windows, or unplug the Ethernet cable from your computer.
Once you have taken care of that, you can go through the many steps to remove the threat yourself or call a reputable repair technician. There are plenty of them in your area. Use your phone or another computer to find the help you need.
