I know that this is 99.99% likely to be a scam, but it literally locked up my computer, and lagged out my mouse. I was looking up something on a wiki for a game (I had visited the sites on my browser, including the wiki, many times before) and this warning
popped up for a Zeus virus. It says "windowsupdate44500error.com says: RDN/YahLover.worm!(number that is probably private) Infection. Windows Defender Alert: Zeus Virus Detectes on your Computer! Please do not Shut down or reset your computer. The following
data will be compromised if you do so:
Credit Card Information
Local Hard Disk Files.
This virus is well known and mostly distributed through Adult/**** sites. Commonly used to steal personal and financial information from the infected device. Your device might also be used for performing DDOS attacks by cyber criminals and cause serious harm
to other networks and websites. Windows defender has sandboxed your browser and locked your PC in order to prevent any further harm.
Please call Microsoft to rectify the issue and get your PC unlocked. Toll free helpline at 1-(855) 261-9984"
I can't click anything, and every time I get close, it stops the selected glow when you hover and freezes my mouse for a few minutes. I don't know if I should attempt to shut off or unplug my computer, keep waiting, or do something different. Keyboard shortcuts
do not work at all. Help!
