Well the issue with my laptop now is that this pass Saturday night August 15th I was searching for a free version of dreamweaver cs6 and I downloaded a torrent, and after I downloaded; I immediately saw a whole bunch of pop ups come, and then I thought oh man I got a virus, but then it was late at night at 2am and I had to wake up early that morning on Sunday to go to church, so I shut down my computer and left it like that, then on Sunday night when I went back and turned on my computer it came to a blue screen and when I try to go to the homepage to go to the internet it was bringing me back to the blue screen with this number 1855-280-0768; which, I then called today and it seems that it is a scam because I check their website that they told me after they said that they will charge me $199 to fix it and then they will send me an invoice and then I will have to send them a check in the mail, so I check their website on scam adviser and saw by the ratings and the reviews that it is a scam here it is - http://www.scamadviser.com/check-website/geekbase.us 


Also this laptop has had an Antivirus called Webroot, and this laptop has been my public college/business laptop that use in college because I'm a college student, and I never have had a problem and it has been clean like new since I purchase it in August 2013, and it is a Core i7 computer. 


Well that is what happen, so how can we fix this; thanks before hand for this forum, don't know what I could without this forum's help that it provides.

Is the computer usable despite of that fake BSOD?
