I would like to know what to do. I am using Win 8.1, when it popped up I was on a cost basis tools website & clicked on 'get latest version' (so stupid) the pop up window won't close but I moved it aside and had AVG antivirus free scan computer with no result and Malware Bytes didn't find anything either. About a minute after I figured out what happened I unplugged the Internet cable from the computer and grabbed my iPad to get online and started trying to figure out what to do. I haven't made it very far - I haven't found a description of what popped up anywhere.
At the header of the pop up window it says Message from webpage, since disconnecting the Internet it just keeps trying to connect the address in the address bar which is http://googleonline.com/winpop.htm
I don't use google I use bing for homepage and search. I'm sure I am forgetting an important detail or two but I am a little freaked I was in the middle of doing my taxes when it popped up.
In the body of the pop up it says:
Security system detected unauthorised (misspelled like that) access on your browser.
System may be infected.

And the Internet page behind the popup has the Norton by Symantec logo on the left bottom and on the right bottom Symantec Registered Partner & Certified Service Provider that looks cut and pasted together.
I am tempted to call just to see what they say but it won't do me any good I'm sure.
Thank you in advance for any help
