    Hey, I found this sent to my e-mail this morning, and I clicked on it out of curiosity and bam! it blocks my browser from closing and it says something is wrong with my operating system and I need to call Windows. It seems pretty sure like virus to me.

    If anybody knows, please let me know.

    here's the URL:

    Remove that URL before someone just clicks it before reading the post. People spam that email hoping someone (like you) bites and then they hope there is something they can exploit in your OS.

    I have removed it. Honestly, I thought one of my new customer submitted me a URL so I went to have a look as to what kind of website it was.

    ** I have a quote form on my website, so seeing different URLs every day is quite normal for me - that's why it caught me off guard.

    Does it have a number that it shows when it says that you should call Windows ?? If so, I am 99% sure that if you call on the other end of the line would be a guy trying to tell you that you should pay some fees for them to fix your PC or he will even ask you if there is a possibility to do a team viewer session. This thing happens a lot and it is annoying. Hope your PC works now, if you do not loose important data restarting it, then it would be better to restart it.
