  2. I have been infected with Ransomware

    Oh.

    I see that a Community Moderator converted your thread from a Discussion to a Question.

    Do you have a question?

    It is not quite clear (to me at least) why you've created this thread....

    In case that you do indeed have a problem with ransomware:

    It would be helpful if you would describe your problem more precisely, see:
    Suggestions for asking a question on help forums


    Without knowing more details, suggestion to read/do:

    Try to identify with what Ransomware you're dealing here:
    https://id-ransomware.malwarehunterteam.com/index.php


    and read/follow this guide:
    How to remove ransomware the right way: A step-by-step guide


    Also: See the pinned threads here:

    Might be the best to get free expert help in above mentioned bleepingcomputer forum....

  3. Possible trojan worm

    I was on the Internet and then a msg appeared stating to call MS at 1-888-660-1755. It stated that I have RDN Trojan worm 1655BCC 5113134 Infection.

    I did not call the number.

    Thanks.
