Call? Wouldn't they email everyone

I'd play it safe though and switch everything over.

Re: Got a call from microsoft saying my modem was hacked ..........
A friend of mine got locked out of her pc and at the same time the phone rings. The guys says he works for Microsoft and wanted $200 to unlock her pc. Wanted her credit card number. She called me instead and I reloaded the hidden partition thus wiping out his lockout program. Another friend had his yahoo account hacked. Seems to be an uptick with this kind of thing.

Just re-install the OS on your computer (hopefully you backed up everything and still have the system disks that came with your computer).

Is it XP? After reloading the hidden partition I went to MS update but update wouldn't work. I had to download service pack 3 from my laptop and load it on hers. Then update would work....

Why? If you're concerned, reset the modem and move on. Simply unplug for a count of twenty and plug it back in.

Are you kidding? Surely, you can spot these wackos a mile away. That "company" has called me many times claiming that my "Windows" is spreading viruses to other computers. The first time they called, I lied and said, "I don't have a computer." Then he was like, "Everyone has a computer." And I said, "Well I don't so what are you talking about?" So it went back and forth to the point where he started swearing at me.

Anyway, here's what I do with these kinds of people. There's also another company that called me for a LONG time saying that they're going to clean my "ducts" (?). I told them that the next time they call me, I'm calling the police because they're harassing me. They said "ok" and hung up. :)

If you Google "Who calls me from..." and enter the number, you can usually find a bunch of other people who have received the same phone call. I tend to not pick up for any number I don't know, unless I want to have some fun with the telemarketers.

And most legit companies will not cold call you like that. Just an FYI.
