Hello,

I am the person that will be helping you today. That is most definitely a scam. You can just ignore that message. Windows will never come up with such a message. You can simply, turn the computer off and on to remove the 'message'. More often than not, when such a message is displayed, it is a spammer trying to confuse and or rip you off.

I look forward to your next message below or your rating on the top of this page (choosing of number of Stars and clicking the Submit button)

Thank you again,
