Hello,

Yes it was a Fraud. Microsoft will never call you unless/otherwise you ask for its assistance. You may please ignore the same and never entertain such requests.

Please let us know in case I was able to solve your issue.

Thanks,

Kumar

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
