But probably not.

You should never pay Any attention to popups or other scare tactics on the Internet. Most, if not all, are scams! Do not click on Anything in a popup, not even the close button. Doing so might invite a drive-by download. If you are worried about spyware, etc. there are plenty of reputable sites, such as malwarebytes.org. The safest place to get any security software is at the venders website. Do Not search Google or any search engine for such programs. You run the risk of clicking a poisoned link and getting Malware.

Defenestrate is derived from Latin de-, “out of” + fenestra, “window.” The noun form is defenestration.
