If you receive a pop-up telling you to call a 1-800 number because your computer is infected, don’t. Instead turn off your computer immediately. Restart it. If the message persists, take it to your local IT shop. Under no circumstances should you call the number. Once you let them into your system, they can install viruses, malware and hijack your data. One client of ours had his data hijacked with a $1600 ransom demand after calling the number. Be safe, do not let anyone you do not know into your system.
