My computer has been blocked
My computer has been blocked and its being pirated I don't know
It said that I should call a number they gave me, in order to unblock it
I called and a woman answered me, the problem is that I struggle to understand whatever she's saying, because I don't really know much about technology
What should I do to repair my computer, please?
Do not call them. It's a common scam. Click the OK button at the bottom of the popup. You should then see a box Do not allow this site to create new messages. Check it and then close the window.
If that doesn't work, for Edge, follow the instructions by Scott_Ki here:
For all other browsers:
Use the Task Manager to exit the browser. Reboot and see if the pop-up goes away.
How to Use the New Task Manager.
If the problem persists, for any browser:
Remove Tech Support Scam pop-up (Call For Support Scam)
