I keep getting phone...

I keep getting phone calls saying it is from Microsoft they say I need to call them because some thing is infecting my computer. They also send me text about my computer. Is this on the up and up.

Technician's Assistant: What's the brand/model and Operating System (OS) of your smartphone?

I don't get text on my phone they send ones that pop up on my computer.

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on with your Pop? What have you tried so far?

It has been going on for a while I turn my computer off for a while.

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
