The top of a "Problem Resolved" internet (IE 10) browser page goes beyond the top of my desktop. How do I get it back on the desktop so I can x it out?

This is not 100% clear.  Where/what is a Problem Resolved page?  Is this happening only with Problem Resolved pages?  
Are you running the browser in Full Screen mode?  Click F11.
Is a vertical scroll bar showing?  Use it.
Change the Zoom setting.  (magnifying glass in the lower right corner)

A screen shot would help.

You usually cannot "x out" a portion of a browser page.

jc, attached is a screenshot. scroll bar and zoom menu do not appear. when I press F11, I get a speaker icon. there is no minimize/maximize button in the top right of the screen because the top of the page shown by the screenshot goes beyond the top of the desktop.

Thanks for the screen shot.
I have never seen that before.
My first reaction is that you should scan with antivirus and antimalware programs.

This is really a popup.  You should be able to block it from IE Tools|Popup Blocker|Turn On Popup Blocker.  This should be done in addition to the malware scans mentioned.

If no help, is there any pattern to when this occurs?  What are you doing when it occurs?

I guess that is a logical message if MS (Philippines) has helped you resolve some problem, but it certainly is a nuisance.  I assume you are not getting these popups at other times.  So I hope the problem is solved.

If it happens again, click the Esc key.
