I received this pop-up a few days ago.  There are typos in it and poor grammar which makes me think it's malware.  However, a full scan with Trend did not find anything.....hmmmmm.

Hi avalon84,

The error message that you have encountered is a Technical Support Scam which is trying to deceive you by contacting the number indicated on the page. 

For now, kindly clear your browsing history. 

If you have other information like; what was the last website you have visited before you received the error message. We could use that to further investigate this case. I have reported this on our dedicated team who's handling this case.

Thank you for the update.  I do not remember what website I was visiting when it popped-up, but will pay attention the next time it happens.  Thanks again.
