Elusive invader on my Win10 desktop

I recently had a fake warning page pop up, saying I had malware and should call "Microsoft". I didn't. Also when I click on a link, I often get not only what I expect, but an additional tab to some additional site. I did a full scan with Defender. I ran a few free antivirus programs. I finally downloaded and run a full check with McAfee. Nothing found in any of my scans. No idea what to try next......

If it was while in a browser than it was likely just a browser alert which people use to trick you. There wouldn't be anything on your computer in that case

If it looked even remotely like this then there's literally nothing to do. It's someone leveraging browser technology to try and scam you. Close the page your on and move on.
