a scam. visit the link I included in my first post for suggestions on how to handle and prevent them in the future.
I got this call too. .., and that is what they say:
"2 Services not active. They computer protection and enable anti virus protection go to www, dot M S G W L Dot Com and follow instructions, failure to do so may result in severe computer malfunction tension. This is an automated Computer System Alert, your computer Protection Services."
As you will have seen upon reading this thread, this is a well-known SCAM.

i just recieved my 2nd and 3rd notification in 15 minutes. They are telling me to go to a certain web site to activate my computer protection. The first message I received last week, I went to the site and Norton STOPPED me .
The Skype calls I have been receiving are to my cell. So I am unable to trace back and block the number. It is asking me to go to tools (system monitoring) website and activate. Why am I receiving these calls. They come in 3-5 a day and there are days I do not hear from them then it starts up again. Today alone I have received 2 in a half hour period. Suggestions anyone?
Thank you in advanced for your assistance
I literally recieved one. It called twice in 5 minutes lol. i finally blocked it. thanks for the heads up guys.
YES! And I went to the website, which asked me to pay. I then knew this was off. But, since then, they call and call, (even when blocked). I have a MAC and did not know one could get viruses, yet my safari browser quits on me all the time. How does one do a 'virus-sweep'? I have NO idea where to go with this one. I have 'MacKeeper', which I thought kept the bad guys away. But, I still get calls and such. WHAT do I do?
