Interesting. I got hit by a similar phony WD alert tech support scam screen locker also on Weds. or Thurs. when I landed on a web site surfing.

The proper way to respond to these is do not click on or interact with anything on the displayed screen. Immediately open Windows Task Manager or Process Explorer and terminate the browser.

Also in my case, Eset didn't catch it. I don't see how it could since these scams are not malware but are rather phishing attempts to get you to call the tech support number listed. Once done, the perpetrators will attempt to get you to purchase remedial tech support you don't need. Or worse, will convinced you to give them remote access to your PC by which they can download anything they wish. As far as all the files listed in your screen shot, those might just be browser temp files which would be normally deleted at browser close time.

These scam web pages vary from simple html ones to more complex ones that utilize javascript and obfuscation. Since there's nothing malicious in them, it's usually only possible to detect them based on the content or by blocking the url or IP address. Since we cannot block a web page generically just because it contains keywords like "Microsoft", "Google", etc. it's not possible to effectively detect them proactively, only reactively, especially given that they also use certain trick to avoid blocking of IP addresses.
