Windows Detected Security Error, Due to Suspicious Activity Found on your Computer. Contact our certified Live Window...

Hi,

During web browsing, an alert "Windows Detected Security Error, Due to Suspicious Activity Found on your Computer. Contact our certified Live Window  Technicians 1-888-711-5651 "  is displayed on screen. It locks down the screen.

Microsoft safety scanner didn't find thing suspicious.

Can anyone, please suggest and advise me the necessary steps to be taken.

BTW it is windows 8. The message started after I downloaded 'Microsoft Visual Studio'.

Kind regards,

MohammadYar.

It's a scam and since you got a popup, you are already infected. I hope you did not call the number.

Something is screwy. Firstly, you don't need to remove you security program to use TDSSKiller nor replace it with Kaspersky.
 
Does this link take you to the same page you were looking at?
 
It doesen't even mention TDSSKiller. I thin't you must have been redirected somehow.
