Hi,

Not sure about costs to call Microsoft , as I’ve never called them
before. But another thing you might want to try even if the message
isn’t there afterwards is install malware bytes, I use a pretty good
anti-virus but malare bytes picks up stuff that antivirus won’t find.
There’s a free and premium version, I use the free one and that works
fine for me. hope you get it all sorted.

Richard, Jessica, and Paul:

Thank you all for the advice. If it comes up again, I will definitely
call Microsoft accessibility. Is there any charge for calling them?

John,

If you know the 800 number, you could Google it from your work
computer to find out if it is for real, which I highly doubt.

But, I'd call Microsoft accessibility: 800-936-5900 from before
turning on the computer. Ideally, from a speaker phone so when you
turn it on, if the pop-up comes up they can hear it.

HTH,

Richard

Hello:

When surfing the web last night, I entered on a link and got a pop
up window that stated Windows detected my system was attacked by
spyware. It stated the spyware was now stealing my credit card
numbers, passwords, and the rest. It also stated this verbally in
a female voice with what sounded like a British accent. It
demanded that I call Microsoft at an 800 number it provided. It
also stated that if I closed the window without calling that
Microsoft 800 number, Microsoft would to protect their system
disable my IP address.

I never trust pop ups from the web so tried to close the window
without success. I then shut down my system, but when I powered
back up the pop up came up again. This time though, I was able to
close the window. I ran a virus scan with Windows Defender and
there were threats found. I entered on the take action link and
let it run its course. I then ran MRT.exe which found nothing.
Then I shut down the system and have not started it since. Keep
your fingers crossed that it is gone when I power up.

For your information, I am sending this message from my work
computer, so should not be infected.

Has anyone heard of this and is the 800 number legit?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thankyou,
