    My computer suddenly locked up, started loudly beeping while issuing a microsoft support number to immediately call. They said I was infected with a Trojan and connected me to PC Net Care for network security. Is this a legitimate company?

    Question regarding a company Claiming to help with virus

    Hi Hana,

    You can protect yourself from any suspicious emails or messages that may be a phishing scams by following the steps below:

    • Never reply to an email that asks you to send personal or account information.
    • If you receive an email, don't click a link that supposedly take you to a company website.
    • Never open any file attached to a suspicious-looking email.
    • If the email appears to come from a company, contact the company's customer service via phone or web browser to see if the email is legitimate.
    • Search the web for the email subject line followed by the word hoax to see if anyone else has reported this scam.

    We also suggest that you reached out our Answer Desk for more information about the message that you received at
