Came as a pop up on my laptop, when I rang they said it would cost £60.00 to have the virus removed. Could not get out of the pop up but as I have a loan computer from Knowhow, I switched it off as the laptop reverts back to the factory settings. Think this is a scam

Don't phone this number.
My laptop came up with a windows alert and a voice message telling me to phone this number as there was a virus in my system and all my personal details would be compromised. I couldn't get rid of the message so had to force computer to close. I've just dared to log on again and pit the number into google to find others have been tricked too.

SCAM
I just got the same message. A woman's voice said this was a Windows system warning that my windows system had been compromised by adware and malware & to ring 08005200436 immediately. I closed down by using 'ctrl alt del ' and checked on my laptop. Have not rung the number quoted. Never come across this one before!
