Hi, and thank you for asking your question.
If you received any call from a service claiming to be Microsoft and offering to repair your computer or for any other tech services, please IGNORE them - they are not affiliated with Microsoft in any way. They trick users into allowing them remote access to their PCs and then install their worthless programs and other malware, while charging the users for doing so.
Microsoft will never place unsolicited calls to anymore unless their services are specifically requested for. For further info, please check out the following official support article on this scam:

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
