    I don't know that I'd call it a microsoft scam call, it has nothing to do with Microsoft.

    Well, when he called and identified himself he said he was Alex from Microsoft and they had an alert from my computer that something was wrong. I only started taping it after I gave the phone to my husband.

    I'm confused. I assume it was malware or a virus that told you to call this bogus Microsoft number?

    Windows key + R is not inherently bad and if a legit help desk person told me to do that to run something I wouldn't have a problem.

    Nope, it was a cold call to us. It's the 5th one we've gotten in the last month or so.

    Oohh that makes more sense. I thought you called Microsoft and were acting like that to a help desk guy.

    Oh hell no! Never. I have worked in customer service for too many years to do that to anyone in that position!
