  1. Alert from microsoft


    Just recently when I went to a new site I was suddenly hit when an alert saying 'Alert from Microsoft. Your computer is infected...' yada, yada, yada, you get the idea. Though I performed a scan and it said no threats were found, I wonder if my computer and all my stuff really are infected and I just can't see it. Is the alert true or is it a scam like people say?

    :)

    Emergency Alerts

    Hi Stephanie,

    Just to confirm, is this the same thing that you tried on your phone, in order to turn off Amber Alerts?

    • Open Settings.
    • Tap on System.
    • Tap on Messaging.
    • Tap on the Change emergency alert settings link.
    • Turn on or off the emergency alerts you want.

    Let us know if this was the same thing that you tried.

    We would also suggest to reset your phone after doing these steps to ensure that the changes on your phone's settings will be refreshed.

    Simply press and hold the Power and Volume down button for 15 seconds and then release your hold afterwards.
