do they detect problems and contact customer without the customer making any contact

No, never

Did you get a phone call from them?

If so, this is a Scam, and a very common one. Microsoft will never do this. Companies (mainly from India) do this, pretending to be Microsoft, to try to access your computer and either steal information, or install programs so they can take control of your computer.

This is a common scam, and I advise you to hang up the phone on them and do not do anything they ask you to.

No company will ever call you for this, the only time you should allow a company to help you is when you initiated the contact, and choose the company, not when they contact you without being asked to.

If you would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.

And if you can take a second to rate my service, that would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you
