Hi. My name is***** you for your question and the opportunity to assist.

Companies that use the term "Microsoft approved" are likely to be a scam as Microsoft does not issue

such approvals. If your were contacted

by e-mail, pop-up on your computer screen or phone call and told that your computer had a problem, a virus infection

or some kind of security vulnerability, then this is most definitely a scam that could cost you hundreds of dollars or more.

Is this your situation?
