Hi there and welcome

This is a trick message, please do not call the number, there is nothing wrong with your computer, it is a trick web page to make you believe there is something wrong.

Close the page (tell me if you cannot) and ignore it.

Its also best to clear the cache for Internet Explorer

To do this

Please do the following in Internet Explorer

Click Tools (the gear wheel top right) than Internet Options

Click on the General Tab and Delete all Temporary Internet Files.

Than click the Advance Tab and click Reset

Then restart the computer and you will be ok

If you have any problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.

And if you can take a second to rate my service by clicking one of the stars at the top of the screen then submit, that would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you
