  This often happens: You are going about your business
  getting information from the web using a Web Browser and you
  get a pop-up effectively freezing the Browser and trying to
  convince you that your computer has been compromised. The
  goal of the bad guys is to get onto your computer to "fix"
  the problem and to get money from you. Do not get screwed.

  Here's the solution:
  1. Quit or Force Quit your Web Browser
  2. Relaunch Browser holding the shift key -- so the Browser 
     will start with your home page
  3. Clear History and Website Data
