Actually, a very easy and safe suggestion is to use Alt+F4 (press the Alt and F4 buttons at the same time). This automatically closes the current window without you having to click on anything. I have a sticky note on the bottom of every monitor with Alt+F4 written down so everyone in the family remembers what to do.

After closing the suspicious window, I would recommend closing any running programs and doing a scan specifically for Malware. Usually instances like the popup windows are trying to install trojans, which may or may not be found by an ordinary antivirus program.

Great thread - I hope many WI users will read this! Rep to you.

Yes K94KC, you should always do a safe virus scan after things like that. There are multiple ways to handle the situation.

Thanks everyone!

GREAT guide! I read once that there was a site that installed a tracking device on your computer when you went to the site... O_o
