Re: Microsoft Computer infection alert
Obviously a scam, but it interesting to think about why they were wasting their time. Did they tell you this was going to cost something to fix?
I haven't so far been able to reproduce the window where I was directed to click a square and hand over control of my computer.
This is on their site about the scam.

Another variation of the scam has the 'employee' locking out the PC and holding it for ransom. Pay us $x dollars or you don't get your PC back. In many cases it is hundreds of dollars to get the PC 'back' - on top of any key logger, malware they might load up...
