A website directed me to a page that said Norton Antivirus and that I had some sort of bad virus and do not remove it manually or it will corrupt files. It also had a popup with my internet providers name and a phone number or press 1. In panic, I pressed 1, nothing happened, so I quickly exited out so I can't give much detail because of how quickly I exited out. I thought it was odd I was provided with a phone number (and I am not sure, it looked like a 1800 but I don't remember very clearly and I will not go back to confirm this). I have a feeling it could be fake seeing as though I don't have Norton but I am running a scan with my current antivirus and so far nothing has popped up yet. Has anyone ever experienced this? Opinions?
Edit: I have Windows 8.1 and my antivirus is Avast Free Antivirus
