hello! I am having a very annoying problem and it is driving me crazy. I have a fake BSOD  and it just will not go away. It's not a virus, that I've found. It also appears to just be a floating image, as I just seem to be able to pick it up and move it out of the way. I still desperately want it gone.

I've attached a cropped screenshot of it (It does not take up the entire screen, if that helps). I just don't know what else to do :/ 

Thank you!

Hi there,

Can you press Ctrl + Alt + Delete to bring up Task Manager, then kill your browser process (IE, Firefox, Chrome etc.)?

It's just a cleverly made popup, so killing the browser will get rid of it. They usually show up in fake tech support pages, please take care not to visit those again.
