Hi, new family!  I am so embarrassed to say that I received a call from someone SAYING they were from Microsoft and as I tried to verify if they were for real, (and they did take me somewhere to show me some "key" that was a mix of letters and numbers on my DOS so I believed them after that), they took over my computer for about 30 seconds, but now I'm nervous about spyware/malware so here I am!

 

So glad I found you!

Hey there kcckriggle4 and welcome to Bleeping Computer.  :welcome:

 

Don't stress too much about falling for that phone call...these things happen and if something is amiss, this is where you'll find the solution for any problem you are having.

 

Again, welcome aboard and we'll see you in the Forums.
