: : : : I got a call from Microsoft tech support. They said they detected a problem with my Windows operating system. They fixed it, but now my computer seems even slower than in was before. Any ideas?
: : : Whoa! You say you got a call from Microsoft tech support. Are you sure it really was Microsoft that called you?
: : Well, they said they were from Microsoft support. Why wouldn't they be?
: Why wouldn't they be? Because they could have been somebody that wanted to get into your computer to get your passwords and such. Did they try to take control of your computer?
Yes, they remotely took control of my computer. They said it was normal procedure. They seemed to know what they were doing and they fixed some things that were wrong.
