"...unlike other scam sites that simply show a dialogue box thus essentially locking your computer, this scam ensures that certain part of the website is free to navigate and also shows some tech support hotline. If you further click on the prompt it opens up [a fake Microsoft page] but again this is a website element that is meant to scam the users. "
