Hi! My name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you. Let's get started!

The popup that you see is part of a scam and usually if you restart your computer, the fake popup will disappear.

Please try to restart your computer and let me know if the issue is fixed after the restart.

I can send a message to customer service to make sure this is a one time charge instead of a monthly membership
