This has happened twice now.  Sorry I didn't pay attention to exactly what it said.  Was hard to make go away.


There are a couple strange things going on. like the window icon in lower left not doing anything, but could be the latest Windows 10 build.

Most likely you just hit a semi-malicious web page or got redirected to one. The "messages" you might see vary alot and could look like anything from a BSOD screen to a more Microsoft inspired look always with a 1-800 number to call.

As far as I can tell the logs look ok as far as malware goes. Not really that familiar with W10 logs yet.

I would imagine being on the insiders release cycle is like getting a beta version everytime. I assume you get builds before the final release?  Things may not work like they normally might.

How Can I Reduce My Risk to Malware?

Thanks.  Haven't had it happen anymore for a couple days.  Yes, the builds can have issues sometimes.
