    My Edge browser is stuck on a page telling me that I have a virus

    So I was browsing a website, and I went to click on something, and I got this annoying url popup with a page that displays a blue screen, and a voice that tells me I have a virus and to call a telephone number, even though that isn't true. Well.. I figured hm, maybe if I sign out of windows and then sign back in that'll fix it, but nope it didn't. I wish there were more options when you right click on the Edge browser to launch it.

    The only way to close it is to end task in task manager.

    It's not....the browser itself is just stuck on that page.

    Apparently, other people have gotten this same page, so it's not just me. Microsoft Edge Stuck in a Loop - Microsoft Community

    Clearing temp files solved this.

    Edit: Next time try Hitting ctrl + alt + del and select task manager, then select Edge and click end task.

    It's not IE, it's Edge. Also I have task manager pinned to my taskbar.

    I figured that out after I posted and did an edit.

    has anyone else had edge decide to go to:
    is it defender giving dialog box with warning and choice to leave or stay, but trying to leave just leads to looping the box.
    yeah, I know how to break out of it, but I should not have to use TM to ET.
    it's a bug and I just went back to EI.
