If you get a phone call from "Microsoft", "Windows", "IRS", etc. OR a screen pops up on your computer asking you to call a number for ANY reason.....DO NOT CALL OR LET THE PERSON TAKE CONTROL/LOG IN TO YOUR COMPUTER!!!!  All of these are scams and will steal your information, extort money from you, and/or lock you out of your computer. Just hang up on them, yell at them, tell them you will call the cops, etc.!!!
You would not let some random person just walk into your house and start messing with your electronics!
Treat your computer the same way!
