What To Do When Your Computer Suddenly Talks To You When Browsing

I have been contacted several times in the last few weeks with people claiming that their computer spoke to them urging them to ring a phone number as they have been infected on their computer.

This happens because you have :

  • Visited an infected web page or have malware on your computer 

So Should You Call The Number ? 

No , turns out you are calling the call centres that call households on a regular basis and they will try and extract money out of you by remote access , ( not a good thing ).

What Should You Do ?

If it still occurs then you may need to get someone to look at your computer
