    Microsoft Message locking my laptop


    My laptop was locked, supposedly by Microsoft security requesting that I call an 800 # to “correct the issue and unlock it. I contacted M-Soft on my ipad & was advised it is a scam; but I cannot get anyone to call me from Microsoft to tell me to safely unlock it.


    My screen is locked to the scam message; and I cannot navigate to any other setting. Can I do a reboot using my on/off button to safely unlock the scam screen says I will lose data if I do that.


    If anyone can please help me with this situation, I would greatly appreciate it.


    Thanking you in advance,


    Jim Timble
