    The actual of this is that the page or something you clicked on while out there possibly even a piece of junk automatically dumps a few bogus no risk trojans on the drive and then directs you to a web page for the solution being they take a you money for a program that doesn't even exist! I've removed this scam bug on a few occasions already by finding locating the hidden bug file under your user account sub folders to see it moved to another location and then simply boot up in Safe mode to nuke it off of the drive on the spot.

    Your av program should easily spot the other bogies and take care of those fast. Initially however the Task Manager gets a new name like "Windows Process Doctor" when not able to close the browser up. Same scam new name been going on now for several years actually! The scam is quite simply geared to get you to pay for ??? Nothing! Here I dissect bugs and learn how to nuke them fast and have to agree with jimbo45 readily about Malwarebytes or any other free trial being able to nuke everything 100% and being a waster or more time downloading useless wares rather then manually getting rid of... This type of scam is designed to bypass and be missed by "every" malware remover out there to begin with since it is not by them as any type of actual threat! That's how the scam works to make you believe that it is when it isn't!
    While there is no doubt that that stuff is out there, this thread is not about that. This thread is *strictly* about a specific web page that says you have a virus, uses a synthetic voice, provides a phone number to call, and does not allow you to close the page no matter what you do. Even if you kill the browser and re-open it, it will once again re-open the page putting you back in the loop.

    This is *NOT* malware, it's *NOT* a Trojan, it's *NOT* a virus, it's not anything except a cleverly crafted web page that uses javascript to prevent itself from being closed. That's all it is. thus finding a way to close the page and not re-open it clears up the problem because there is no actual virus on your computer.

    Here's a link to the Malwarebytes blog that discusses those un-closeable Tech-Support-Scam pages and sites:

    There are new scam pages for each new attempt! The bomb I was pointing to had a fake Microsoft Security Essentials GUI on it and the Bogus Windows Process Doctor bomb shell dropped in user account sub folder that prevented you from ending the process when not able to call up the task manager! The four trojans the fake program warned about were suspicious enough for any av program to clean up but did nothing. The scam was the message you "had to buy" the program to see the trojans removed! The gimic was to kidnap your machine forcing you to pay out for a non existant fakeware. Same ripoff artists with a new game to fall for!

    To clear Edge history, from inside of Edge:

    On upper right click on hamburger menu (three stacked lines symbol).

    Click on Clock symbol. Click Clear All History.

    A side menu comes up with various clearing options. Select the clearing options and press Clear.

    That's a good one! It won't be found in the Advanced settings but simply click on the first button over on the right side that also sees short horizontal lines.

    Click image for larger version.

    The yellow marks point to the button used to open up the screen and the Clear history option to delete the browsing history in one shot. You won't find a lot of the usual IE setting but will find the "always allow cookies" and other option on the second screen in the Advanced settings there towards the bottom half as you scroll down. 10 uses a lot of the on'off type switches for seeing any setting changes made in just about everything but the classic Control Panel itself.

    When you click on the Hamburger menu (three stacked lines symbol)...

    The next menu has four selections, and it remembers what you selected last time. So Clear All History
    may not be visible without clicking on the Clock symbol.

    Get some web filtering on that will block Bogey pages! The av programs that provide effective web filtering also block a great deal of the scum wares as well as malwares out there! The Crawler Security toolbar was an old IE addon toolbar that offered some protection while the two av softwares seen for this are VIPRE Internet Security 2015 presently available for a 30 day trial and Norton's Internet Security!

    These softwares include firewall protection which features the web filtering If you want something long term. For the short time however the Crawler annoyance tool bar should help a bit while nothing you will want to keep on forever! It works for IE as well as Firefox while I ran it on Opera when still using the 32bit other browsers. Crawler.com - Products
