Is it malware (like if you click something it's trying to get you to install it)

Or is it a windows system message?

I doubt if a phone tech told you to do this, it is MalWare (although it's entirely possible).

Can you please COMPLETELY explain(instead of 1 sentence and "what do i do" posts) what brought this on. When you ask good questions, it's much easier to give good answers.

Why did you call the phone tech?

What did he tell you to install?

Why did he tell you to install it?

If you paid $99, call him back and tell him you're still having probs.

Good luck

next time call me and I will get in there and fix it, explain everything I am doing and make sure it's either working, or tell you what you need to do to get it working. I'll even do it for free.

There are scams being carried out by people posing as Microsoft, and other companies.
They tell you there is a problem with security. They give you a number to call and go from there. You've been had.

I'm no expert, but I recommend this site. It's got some definitions and fixes.

http://www.spywarehammer.com/

Maybe you can find your glitch there and fix what ails ya.

It may not be that deep.... You SHOULD be able to do a full restore (ie, the pc will be the way it was when you bought it, any files, software, etc.. that were added after that, will be gone).

How old is the PC?

I am not a Mac fan, but there are a few people in this world that I would recommend a Mac to. This gentleman is one of them. No offense meant.

Reminds me of my mother in law. She got a popup on her PC saying her computer is infected and if she entered her credit card number and let them charge $50ish bucks the computer would be fixed. She fell for it.
