Re: Microsoft Computer infection alert

Always keep it simple. Microsoft and other reputable software makers will never cold-call a computer user about a purported virus problem or infection. Neither will they send a user a similarly-focused, unsolicited eMail containing clickable links or call-back phone numbers.

When in doubt, separately call the organization back or visit its website using a phone number or URL that has been independently obtained via known-legitimate printed materials from the organization and verify that the issue really exists.
