Im not sure but a software interrupted my browsing last Friday and started giving all kinds of warnings. Then windows poped up stating I needed a software to fix the near fatal errors.

Like an idiot I bought it and it proceeded to delete almost every program I had. The charge was from this company.

A search result hit for hddlivesupport.com shows a billing company that asks for your personal/SSN information. There is no information about who they are.

A whois yielded this info:
