    Don't click on the pop-up! Don't click "Cancel" either!
    Use Alt+F4 to close the window.

    This window popped up while using Firefox with Adblock extension, ZoneAlarm Pro, Pop-Up Killer, Spybot Resident, AVG, Windows Defender.

    After doing a little searching, I found that it would have installed some sort of trojan/data miner, had I clicked on the window.

    What site did you visit that caused this pop up? If it just came up on your desktop while you weren't surfing, etc, do you have a hardware router/firewall?

    I was surfing the imdb.com, looking at some old movie cast info. Actually the popup happened while following a link from that site about other movies from that cast member (obscure, already forgot who)

    Nothing got installed, I did alt+F4 to close the window. Did a scan with Ad-aware, spybot, and ZoneAlarm, got nothing.

    What bothered me was how the popup displayed despite Popup Killer, ZoneAlarm (granted set on medium for adblocking), Adblock extension for Firefox. I do have the hard firewall on a D-Link MIMO router.
