I know this is probably a virus so does anyone know how to remove it (if it is a virus)
http://prntscr.com/b2ng4u
It also makes an incredibly annoying loud beeping noise (which leads me to suspect its a virus)
I also run windows 10

If you seen this in a browser tab, you can likely ignore it. The 800 number is bogus since the last series of digits is only 3 digits long.

If you are really concerned, do a manual scan with your AV software. Also download MalwareBytes (free edition) and scan with it. If both of these turn up clean, you are OK.

Do you have popup blocker turned on on your computer? Also, I would also get some type of ad-block addon to your browser... That can fix quite a bit of these types of issues!!!
