Clicking on the popup - even to close it could be enough to allow access. Killing your session will stop the code before it installs. This will stop the process cold, but you will be closing your browser session(s) as a result. I don't play with these buggers and I don't rely on my AV as a safe fallback. These apps are built to beat AV clients......I've cleaned them up too many times with my users with a current AV DAT file loaded.
