Stop Falling for Tech Support Scams

Picture this.  You’re browsing the web when, BAM, a message pops up on your screen telling you that your computer is infected with a virus.  You try to close the message, but it keeps coming back.  What do you do here?  How are you going to get rid of the message?  In the message, you notice an 800 number to call with the promise that they will get you back up and running again.
