Hi, I'm Sandy and I look forward to help you today with the best answer possible.

I'm sorry about the issue.

I will work with you until it is fixed.

Please reply at the box given below and type your queries/result at the box given below.

No, it is a spam message. It is not Microsoft number. I suggest you not to call them as they will later charge you big amount of money.

You can remove these fake messages free of cost.

Some hidden malware/spyware/adware could be causing this issue:

I suggest you to scan your computer using free version of Super anti-spyware software. This will remove all of the malwares, spywares and viruses from the computer.

Note: If you already have installed Anti-virus programs like Norton, mcafee, CA, kaspersky on the computer, still I suggest you to download and install Super anti-spyware as the Anti-virus program does not remove Malwares/adwares/spywares effectively.

You can download the free version using the link given below:

Please run quick scan to complete the scan in 10-15 minutes.

If you have any other query regarding this issue, please do not hesitate to let me know.

Also, I can help you over remote session. Please let me know.
