Surfing (for a new door) tonight, my wife ran her 64-bit Win7 Ultimate into what's apparently a 'tech help' scam (screen shot attached). Couldn't shut the tab in Chrome so Task Manager-closed the whole browser. Upon reboot began to run NOD32, which promptly reported a blocked boot sector in the logical drive I park data in -- not drive C: but an E: I carved out of the hard drive back when. NOD32 was finding NO infections per se but a lot of corrupted files; so I shut the machine completely down. Before I turn it back on, should I load Eset's ERARemover or what? Nobody in this forum nor webwide is remarking this specific problem set. Thanks in advance for any real insight anyone can offer.

That's just a script that locks the browser's tab and displays scary fake warnings. It should be enough to close the tab. It's usually possible to open a new tab and then you should be able to close the tab with the warning.
