It tried to get me but I shut Browser down quickly with Task Manager and MSE got it to quanteen BEFORE it could harm machine.

ADDED:
Normally I would just hit kill switch on PSU and start machine from another set of SSDs and run AV on Bad set of SSDs but this time I caught it before the rogue could harm the running system.

Same here but with a slightly different wording in search. AVG on this machine caught it.
