Don't call that number.
I got these messages stating a trogan horse was attempting access, twice when opening threads on the forum,
The pop ups look like Windows Essential pages, but I have Win 10, which doesn't use Win Essential.

This is slipping through I believe via Google ads. Best way I know to deal with it is Control Alt Delete - Task Manager - End Task on your browser. After that delete cookies and history. Also some of them are opening up browser settings and adding a tab to the home page taking you right back to the site that gives the pop ups. If that is the case remove that tab from your browser settings.
To put the Google Ads theory to the test I turned off my Ad Blocker and within 10 pages on taurusarmed.net I got the same warning. Removed it, did more pages with Ad Blocker off and boom, got it again. Cleared it and turned Ad Blocker back on and it I have not seen it again.

The 2nd amendment is not about hunting or shooting sports, it is about the citizens of this country having the means to protect themselves and the states from the tyranny, oppression, and misery of an over powering government. Modern rifles are a means for the citizens to stand up to an over powering government.

It's been on local news lately. A scam to get you to call that number, and gain control over your computer.

I use Google Chrome with the AdBlock extension. Occasionally will get a message on a web site that I must disable it to read the page contents. So I open an incognito page <Ctrl-Shift-N>, copy the URL from the first page (click the address bar, <Ctrl-C> and paste it in the incognito window <Ctrl-V> and hit the Enter key. I have AdBlock configured to not block in incognito so the page runs. But when done and I close it there's no history, cookies or anything else left from that site. Also Chrome has its own task manager, called up using <Shift-Esc> that lets you see everything that's running. If you have a frozen tab just select it and end it. And Windows task manager is always available.
Here's the info copied from an incognito window:
You’ve gone incognito
Pages you view in incognito tabs won’t stick around in your browser’s history, cookie store, or search history after you’ve closed all of your incognito tabs. Any files you download or bookmarks you create will be kept. However, you aren’t invisible. Going incognito doesn’t hide your browsing from your employer, your internet service provider, or the websites you visit.
