Hey, yesterday I just received robot call from 800-558-9204 announcing EMERGENCY, Microsoft Windows license key has expired. To renew license please call 800-558-9204.” I returned the call and a woman’s voice (American accent) directed me to call a number regarding a Microsoft license key that had expired and told me my computer would be “shut down” if I did not renew my license key. I am not a computer literate and don’t understand if this phone message from real Microsoft. I’m afraid if someone will hack my computer but now my computer is really blocked by a license key needs to be renewed warning and I can’t go any further. Could you please help me?
