Well done for annoying the scammer, but I can think of a way you could have annoyed him MORE, and wasted more of his time to give him less chance to ring people who might fall for him.
Upon receiving the call, first ensure your computer is turned off, and disconnected from the internet (if it uses a wire make sure this is not connected). Then step away from your computer into another room. Now tell the man on the phone that you are just starting your computer (of course in reality it is OFF and you are in another room), to avoid him asking why he can't hear the windows log on sound tell him you have a problem with your speakers. Now pretend to follow his instructions, tell him what you would be seeing if you were (but in reality the machine is off and you are metres away) following them. At any point you can appear to be as inexperienced with computers as possible, when he says "right click" say "I've opened mspaint, drawn out the word "CLICK" but nothing has happened", when he says "press any key" ask "where is the "any" key". The key things you need to memorize are: what the windows "windows key+r" "run" dialog box looks like, what control panel, administrative options and event viewer look like, how to open event viewer, how to open a command prompt window, what a command prompt window looks like. You must not, ofcourse, be tempted to turn on the pc and actualy do any of these things, just remember what they look like, so you know what to describe down the phone when the man inevitably asks you to do them. Another useful thing to remember is all the jokes about really incompetent users, pretend you are making each and every one of the mistakes described by these jokes. Keep this up as long as you can until he realises you are talking bulls**t and have not been anywhere near a computer the whole time. See how long you can keep him on the line and wasting his money paying for the call.
Another thing to consider is that you could always deliberately interpret "calling about your windows" as a question about glass, see how long you can keep him busy by saying "No, surely not, "my windows" can't have a virus, or any other hamrful microbes on them, I sprayed them with detergent yesterday, and wiped down the outside just last week.".
Do you know how long he listened to the music for before giving up?
