Hi Guys,

I was targeted by Microsoft windows today with a chance to win a new phone or free gift quite randomly, all i had to do was answer 3 questions in 4 minutes. 

I was suspicious so i tried to exit the screen but couldn't so i turned computer off. Has anyone else had this happen to them, and is it a scam.thx

Hello @supertonk,

Can you run a scan with Malwarebytes and ADWCleaner to make sure it isn't a malware infection and post the results

Hi, I did what you advised and ran ADW and it found 12 threats that did not show on M/B.

They were 5 pups and 7 Adware-pokki which i cleaned up. Thx for advise..rgds

In the future, please ensure you're taking the advice from someone trained in Malware removal in case something were to go wrong. Here in this forum if something went wrong it may be days before someone came along to help.

Thank you

I will go ahead and close this topic now as resolved.

Thank you

Ron
