As I said in the first post :

Obviously the work of a scam artist - but I'm not sure how it popped up.

These things pop up from time to time especially where you might accidentally hit a fishing link on a site that redirects or pops up an alert such as the one you got.

except the system was idle.

Unless you completely shut down everything including your router all is not as idle as it seems.

That is literally true. All you need to do is examine the resource monitor.

But you probably know what I meant. A web page  was open, but I wasn't opening different pages, clicking a mouse on the page, or links on pages, or ads on pages, etc.
