Last night I got an alarm that said "Windows Immediate Action Alert & Alarm" complete with warning sounds. It said I needed to call 877.242.8595 immediately to work through this issue. My computer was acting up all day, screen turning milky white, freezing up, I couldn't get much done.
Long story short, after 2.5 hours of them working inside my computer, I paid $210 for 5 years of Norton and 1 yr of tech support from them. Today, I'm having second thoughts but the computer does work nicely.
American Express (which they didn't want to take but I insisted) said they seem to be legitimate according to PCWorld.
The name of the company is WebWareWorld, Inc. 8800 167th Place, Orland Hills, Ill. 60847
Has anyone ever had this happen? Should I shut my life down and start over from scratch? New credit cards? New bank cards? New passwords?
Why doesn't Microsoft step in to help people?
