To all browsers save the Brave browser (different take on browsers.) This is not so much a virus but a hijack. I usually get out of the loop by booting safe mode.
The virus alert from Microsoft along with the usual audio loop telling you is sadly an issue of not an infection but visiting a hijacked web site that has this code to hijack most browsers.

Again, not an Edge browser exclusive.
Ever since Microsoft edge was install into our desktop I get redirected constantly to a Shaw free phone pop up and today a virus alert from Microsoft edge locking my computer asking for username and passwords. I figure some malware/adware got in with this edge software. Where’d this Microsoft edge come from anyway. I was ok before it. Anyway I knew of sites to go to for rootkill and malware removal but that was awhile back. Probably the last time I was here. Can anyone help me clean up my desktop. In advance thanks. Rob
