Can't get out of this one on a Mac OS 10.8.5

Preferences and other adjustments are greyed out

Window pops up in the middle with doom and gloom warnings and a number to dial

Stuck !

I would suggest running a program like: AdwareMedic to scan your computer for Malware.

You may need to go there from a different computer and download the file to a USB thumb drive so you can copy it to the "problem" computer.

leachim,

Can you create a NEW user account on this Mac.. and log into that account and see if the problem persists on that account?

Funny thing

After I restarted it this morning, Safari was not blocked anymore

Sadly, I can't pinpoint what else I did other than scan it.

I removed some add-ons before, but that didn't make any difference at the time

Weird....
