    Do you have people who call regularly selling things like protection etc from Microsoft. I keep getting calls from all different numbers. Very upsetting

    May I offer you a suggestion: If you have any emails from the "scammer" gather them and make sure your credit card company knows about them. I was luckily able to recoup my payment. Good Luck.

    Microsoft scammers

    Yes, that should be enough.

    Probably you saw something similar to what is described here:
    https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-removal/remove-your-computer-has-been-locked-popup-scam


    All these kind of pop ups are fake alerts. Your PC is NOT infected.

    Do NOT call the phone-number which is displayed in that fake alert.

    It leads to scammers who try to trick you into giving them access to your computer, to steal your passwords etc and to sell you their unneeded services etc.

    Please carefully read the following article which explains in detail how to get rid of such pop ups and what to do if you keep on seeing them:
