I have a message alleging that my computer has been infected

Resolved Question:

I have a message alleging that my computer has been infected with spyware and urging me to contact "Microsoft" (?) on a premium rate telephone number. I suspect this is an attempted scam since your security scans have not identified the problem. is there a way to remove this message from the Microsoft Edge browser ?
