Just one caveat Robert to #7 - even clicking on the so called 'upper right hand corner red x' is a risk...  there is no guarantee what clicking there will do. http://www.50connect.co.uk/technology/internet/fight_off_the_scareware_threat 

Alt-F4 should close the pop-up window, and if it does not, then Ctrl-Alt-Del and use the Task Manager to kill the whole IE/FF browser etc(including any other running copies).

I confess to installing 'Internet Security 2010' in a moment of weakness a couple of years ago, thinking I was removing a trojan, only to install one.  Took days to resolve and clean fully because that machine had no effective AV. It does now.
