Hi, I had a lot of trouble with my "old" computer - it was only a few years old and was giving me fits every time I used it. I bought a new one a few days ago. Had more trouble, but of a different kind.
When the computer message said they couldn't add "Office" to it, and to call a phone number - I did. The woman told me I had thousands of "Trojans" on my machine and I needed to buy some program. I didn't give a credit card number and got off the phone as fast as I could.
I figured it was a scam.
I took the computer to the man who has worked on our computers for a few years now, and he took care of things. Among other things, he said I had NO malware on my machine. He confirmed that it was a BIG scam.
Anyway, I THINK my computer is ok now, and will be going through a bunch of emails today.
