Hello,
I am sorry to hear about your problem. My name is ***** *****, I am a Tech Expert with over 20 years of experience and look forward to helping you today.

First off, do not call that number. If you do so, they will do their best to rip you off for a very large amount of money.

What you see on the screen is an advertisement. Simply press and hold the Power button on your computer until it turns off and turn it back on. Once you do that the advertisement will vanish and you will be in the clear.

If you have any questions, please, let me know.

Rating me on the top of the page doesn't cost anything extra. Rating is how I am given credit. If you don't rate, doesn't give you a refund.

I would really appreciate it if, you could take a moment and rate me on the top of this page by clicking the Stars and clicking the Submit button on the top of this page.
