This thing has taken over my MS Edge and they won't let me close it out. I tried to remove Edge and could not do that either. I have a FixMeStick but they blocked it. I tried to message @goaskalice but there is no way to add an image. Watch out for this one.

Hope it gets sorted. This sort of thing would freak me out as I would have no idea what to do.

@JudyEv and @akalinus CTL + ATL + DEL and then rebooting is the easiest way out of most of these situations.

@msiduri That did not work in this case. System restore did.

It just came on the page. I have been getting warnings. I restarted the computer each time. Today, it just took over. I am sure if I call the number, they will want money to release it. I cannot find a way to uninstall Edge and they disabled my FixMeStick.

@tech40 I hope you don't experience that. I was so upset that I was shaking and turned the computer off early.

Is this the one someone on here said was coming from someone on this site? I have heard it originated in India if it is the same one.

I had to do Ctrl, Alt, delete in order to reboot. It was the only way to get it off.

@akalinus are you sure that the problem came from MyLot? Edge has been known for being susceptible (according to friends). What is a "FixMe Stick"?

I was on myLot when it happened. It could come from something else. A FixMeStick is something you plug into a USB port. It is supposed to remove viruses and malware that your Malwarebytes and antivirus miss. I am thinking of firing my antivirus. I have MalwareBytes premium, also. Did a scan with both and they came up clean. The stick was disabled and would not work.

@akalinus Ah. Now I do recall hearing something about those things. Consider going to System Suite as it has stopped the same kind of things on our computers.

@akalinus Ah, good. That's my husband's fix for infections as well. Would like to be able to reach through the computer and throttle the scum that do create these things.
