No one would call you from Microsoft. It was a scammer. If you allowed them entry to your computers I would immediately check your credit cards and bank accounts for any unauthorised withdrawals and change you passwords and pin numbers

I am very suspect about this posting as I come on this site every day and this is posted by the same person on a regular basis , every 2 to 3 weeks with almost identical wording , what makes me suspicious is that he always begins the thread by saying …… I got 3 laptops etc... Lets be realistic guys WHY would somebody continue to repost this , I have seen threads where people on here have said how to get round passwords but no way am I going to say how. Passwords are not secure , that's why there are so many apps to make them more secure. The main reason passwords are put on a pc is to stop idiots doing damage when you walk away from your pc either at work or home.

FOOTNOTE I have also seen this exact post under different names which is to much of a coincidence , maybe the forum runners should remove the option to change user name.

This thread is now locked and can not be replied to.
