totally black, and then a full screen unstoppable video. I
tapped, pressed, held F11 with no result. I have no idea
what player opens the video. I must say that loss of control
is freaky, especially when I fear other (malicious) websites
can place what ever they want regardless of firewalls,
spybot, AV, etc.

I received an e-mail from a professional organization that provided a
link to a website. >
When I clicked the link, a full screen video captured my computer. No
way to stop it (without shutting off the computer). These did not
work: Ctrl Break, ctrl+alt+delete, esc, enter, tab, f1-f8, you name
it, I was captive.
How do I stop this type of behavior (besides never clocking on any
link)? How do I prevent the take over of my computer when browsing or
at least escape from it? Obviously AV and firewalls did not work, nor
I got no "full screen video [which] captured my computer." SM opened in
normal mode, and the built in wmp player played. Is that what you're
talking about? When your browser opened, it opened in full screen, with
no menus, etc? If so, then you didn't go all the way with the F keys.
Its F11 to change it back.
Preferences, Advanced, Scripts & Plug-ins, and uncheck Move or resize
existing windows, and Raise or lower windows.
