[10:30:24 PM] *** Call from SYSTEM NOTICE™ ONLINE MAINTENANCE, duration 01:48. ***
This call gave me a website to go to, stating that something in my computer wasn't safe, i went to the side but didnt click on anything and it said that a back door and what not was opened, and a few other things as if it had scanned my computer. However I went and used my own two scanners and nothing showed up. Why would I get a call like that on Skype stating such actions had taken place on my computer when in fact it had not? I would like to know if this call had come from Skype or an outside source.

i just had one too, seems dodgy, i googled the website and all options came up in gobledy **bleep** (or encrypted or something) so i stayed well away and started looking here for answers.
