    Picked up malware

    Went to streaming site for HD movies and without clicking on anything I picked up malware that states windows has detected virus please call this number do not turn off your PC etc . It's a well known spoof of malware that is detected thru your browser when connected to internet. When internet is disconnected the warning goes away. I'm in process rights now of removing but why wasn't I warned of this before hand? I have the latest upgrades and updates of windows 10 virus protection ?? Totally annoying and time consuming . My other two PC's with win 10 on one and win XP on the other don't have this issue with that internet site for browsing latest movie streaming . I could go to and browse the titles without being infected by this spoof virus messages.
