Is this a scam to get into my computer or a phone scam?

I received a call from someone who told me that it was Eco Vision tech, and he advised me that they had reports that I have viruses and errors reports and that my computer was at a high risk of losing all my data. He asked me to open the computer, I did not. He called for 021-2777 amd gave me 1-877-523-2355, when I asked for a number I could remind him. You know nothing about it?


It's a SCAM

they want or money on your part for programs without value or make an identity theft on you to get even more money and get your internet banking passwords and credit card information, you get allows you to download the software to 'fix' or 'test' for your computer

Microsoft has none of the unsolicited telephone calls to help you fix your computer

In this type of scam cybercriminals are calling you and claim to be of Support technique Microsoft. They offer help with your computer problems. Once scammers have earned your trust, they try to steal and damage your computer with malicious software, including viruses and spyware.

Although the law enforcement can trace phone numbers, often authors use pay telephones, disposable cell phones or stolen cellular phone numbers. Better avoid fooling themselves rather than try to repair the damage afterwards.

Treat all unsolicited sceptically telephone calls. Don't provide personal information.

If you receive an unsolicited call from someone who claims to be from Technical Support Microsoft, hang up. We do not have such calls.

If you think you might be a victim of fraud, you can report it. For more information, see: what to do if you think you have been scammed.

  • I had to re install my vista from a backup I did earlyier and he does not remember what my password was at this time and he can't get into my computer.

    I tried to upgrade vista ultimate to 7 ultimate and never managed to do work he kept crashing until I installed it (I tried about 6 or 7 times). I then went back to vista and had to reload from a return upwards I had done. now, I can't connect to my computer all it says is the wrong password and I tried all the passwords that I can remember.

  • iertutil.dll was not found after trying to download internet explorer 8. I can't get into my computer. Not even the start screen.

    I can't get into my computer.  All I can get is the Task Manager.  It shows all my still intact material, I'm not him.  Not even to my home screen.  All that appears is my screensaver and a message saying to re - install iertutil. DLL... but how to do when I can't.

    Maybe someday, we will see again the proposal to:

    Once you open the Task Manager try the commands below.

    1. in the Task Manager, click file, and then click new task

    2. now type rstrui.exe and click OK

    This would launch the system restore on the computer refer the below Microsoft article more about the restoration of the system.

    If you really try , you would find that it does not work because rstrui.exe is unlikely that never will be in the PATH statement.

    If you want to launch the restoration of the system from the Task Manager, you will need to perform a new task like this:


    If c:\windows\system32\iertutil.dll is missing, you will see a message like this:

    Explorer.EXE - unable to locate component

    The application has failed to start because iertutil.dll was not found.  Re-installing the application may fix the problem.

    Because explorer.exe is not running, you will see only your background image /, but Ctrl-Alt-Delete will always bring up the Task Manager where you can maneuver around and replace the file.

    If the only problem with your system, it's that iertutil.dll is missing, you can replace the backup copy in the dllcache folder.  You can continue to obtain reviews iertutil.dll is absent, but just click OK for messages of recall as they pop up so you can continue working.

    One might think that you use the Task Manager, you can browse c:\windows\system32\dllcache and (after choosing to view all files) copy the iertutil.dll from there and then paste the iertutil.dll file in c:\windows\system32 where it belongs.  That actually works, but it seems that it does not work as you will get an hour glass stuck on the paste operation and perhaps wonder whether or not it has actually worked.

    To feel better replace the missing file, so you can actually see the file being copied and replaced... Task Manager, click file, new task and enter in the box (assuming that Windows is installed on your C drive):


    Click OK to open a command prompt window and first make a copy of the original file (if it exists) by entering the following command:

    copy c:\windows\system32\iertutil.old c:\windows\system32\iertutil.dll

    That copies the file in progress if there is an and it will just complain if it is not a copy.

    We know that XP likes to keep the backup copies of critical system files in this folder:


    Knowing this, copy the backup copy of the missing file and replace the missing or suspicious file by using this command:

    Copy c:\windows\system32\dllcache\iertutil.dll c:\windows\system32

    Answered in the affirmative if invited to replace the existing file and then you should see a message that 1 file (s) has been copied.

    Type "exit" to close the command prompt window.

    Who will replace the missing or suspicious file and if that's all that's wrong with the system, Shut Down box Task Manager, you can choose to reboot your system and see how things are going.

    Do, or do not. There is no test.

  • someone is trying to get into my computer via the internet?

    I received a phone call regarding downloads from my computer I did not authorized, by saying that, because of the volume of these downloads, my computer is running slowly. I reported my computer "suspended" through the box that appears on a regular basis when I decided to close my browser because of a message "do not answer."

    I've heard other people receiving these phone calls, but this is the first time I received a. The phone number that gave me was 855-888-5881; When I called this number gave me the site: that I have no intention to go unless you have more information that it is a valid site, authorized by Microsoft. Is your company knows nothing about it?


    Nope. It's the new scam circulating. I wouldn't give them any information. Companies may not follow your PC or monitor your errors (when you send information to Microsoft, it is anonymous).

    I would ignore or tell them that you will call the police. This ends in general calls.

  • I changed my password on the computer and can not find the book that I wrote on and now I cannot get into my computer account. How can I rectify this?

    Remember - this is a public forum so never post private information such as numbers of mail or telephone!


    • You have problems with programs
    • Error messages
    • Recent changes to your computer
    • What you have already tried to solve the problem

    Start the computer in safe mode and log on to the built-in account named administrator .  You will need to know the password, if any, for this account.  Once, go to Panel > user accounts and change the password for your regular account.

    Then, restart the computer and you connect to your regular account with the new password.  If the computer has a floppy drive, you can make a password reset disk

Help, please! I HAVE BEEN FIGHTING WITH this for MANY HOURS Thank YOU

    You can use system restore to restore Windows to a date where your password still worked:
    1. put your BIOS so that it uses the DVD drive as its primary boot device.
    2 start the computer with your Windows 7 repair CD.
    3. press a button if you are prompted to start from the DVD.
    4. When prompted, select "Safe Mode Command Prompt".
    5 log in as administrator if you are prompted.
    6. Select repair when prompted.
    7. When you are prompted, select System Restore.
    8. set Windows to a point before this problem occurred.
    9. When finished, remove the CD before restarting the system.
    In step 2, you can also use the Windows 7 installation DVD. The subsequent steps are similar to those above.

    When you're done, why not create a second admin account, then lock up its details. Next time you have a password problem, use the same way you use the spare key to your car when misplace you the master key.
