Yesterday whilst on BT I got a pop-up asking me to do a survey, purportedly from BT - which I closed. I had a few tabs open on Edge and suddenly there was a 'warning' that I had a virus, that the site was unsafe (copied below) which I'd never heard of and to phone Microsoft toll free on the number written there. Needless to say I didn't do anything but I couldn't close Edge down unless I went through Task Manager but as soon as I re-booted up they all came again. I changed browser and went to Microsoft to find that Microsoft Edge had been hijacked.
Prior to this I had run Emsisoft Emergency and quarantined 1 item - not this one - so I ran it again and I found 2 - one of which was the one referred to. I tried to take a screen shot of the messages but couldn't. Emsisoft quarantined the address and told me to come here and that experts would sort it for me, so here I am. Immediately after it was quarantined Edge was free of tabs but I'm not going to use it. When I put the computer on today message from Emsisoft said this site was trying to activate or something. Would I be safe if I uninstalled Edge? I find this situation very scary as I've never been 'targeted' before.
The site in question is:
I have Win 10 Home 64-bit - Processor: AMD Athlan 11 x 2 220 2.80 GHz
I hope I've given you all the info and look forward to hearing back from you.
Thanks in advance.
