I don't know. My husband may have set it up it was addressed to him. He has lost his knowledge of computers and I am getting these messages and don't know where they are coming from. I have had an account from Malwarbytes. Maybe it is through them but there was nothing of the email to verify where it came from,

Advanced Computer System Repair program costs you and it's not worth it. You only need an antivirus / security program on your computer. Do you have one?

Besides getting these email messages, does your computer pop up any other error or message?

Please type at the box below, then click on the Send button below to communicate with me. Thank you.

No . Thank you. I'll try to talk to someone else personally. Sorry this is not way I want to go.

I have antivirus. I think I will just unsubscribe to the email.

Yes. You should unsubscribe to the email. Do you know the name of your antivirus / security program, such as Norton, McAfee, Avast, AVG, Malwarebytes, Bitdefender, Kaspersky, Webroot, etc.?

Please reply at the box below. Thank you,

AVG and I have Malwaebytes Anti-Exort Premiumn

Great. That's all you need. In the future, please just ignore any repair or driver or cleanup program offer. You don't need any of those extra programs; it's costly and it usually does not help. Your computer is protected with AVG antivirus program and Malwarebytes antimalware program.

Do you have any further question? And/or do you need anything else for now?

Please reply at the box below to continue. Thank you,

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
