Viruses and malware are the bane of the computer user’s existence. The “bad guys” are working night and day to infect your computer for all sorts of nefarious reasons. They may be claiming to be a “Microsoft Partner” who will attempt to trick you into giving them remote access, and try to sell you a “maintenance package” that will fix all your issues via a 1-800 number. This can lead to credit card fraud, identity theft, and more. While there are legitimate Microsoft Partners, they will never approach you unsolicited from a website pop up. We recommend that you always deal with a local company you know and trust. Don’t be tricked into doing something you normally wouldn’t do because of fear tactics.
