    Scam?

    No, that's not a Microsoft phone number.

    All these kind of pop-ups/alerts are fake warnings - scams. Never ever call these numbers.

    Please read:

    In case you keep on getting these fake alerts:

    Follow the steps provided here: Remove Tech Support Scam pop-up (Call For Support Scam)

    You might want to report this to Microsoft (but you don't have to):
