I think it is a scam. Press Control, Alt, Del n choose task Manager and del that task. Definitely a scam. Caller: Fake 'Microsoft' support
One of my clients had this number come up in a popup in her web browser saying the computer is blocked and to call the number for support. DO NOT DO IT!!!
Its definitely a scam. Our pc locked up today implying we needed technical support. I'll called the number provided which is live number where a person did answer. I am scanning my pc but nothing sinister found so far and my files don't appear to be encrypted. Not sure what would happen if you actually spoke to the person, I'm guessing they would of gone for remote access to my computer which could of then lead to them asking for credit card details. Its definitely a scam. Is you wife's computer safe to use now? My wife has her computer blocked by this scamming group. The number is on screen pretending to be Google etc. What a pain. Ransom ? Probably. Off to the cleaners tomorrow. Caller: Scam
Pretending to be Microsoft
