Question possible scam

I hope someone can give me advice.

Today, I received an email from my insurance company that the holder of the privilege or the leasing company made changes to my policy. I am owner of the car. I called the insurance company and I was told that a holder of privilege was added yesterday. The holder of privilege has been removed.

Two weeks ago, that a payment to my credit card were made with an account that I closed years ago. I do not that is. The information I have on my computer are only for my bank account, not the one that was closed years ago.

Where should I go from here? Any advice?

  • possible scam of phone microsoft

    Hello - I got daily phone calls from "No. Caller ID" people claiming to work for Microsoft with regard to hacking my account. All of the appellants had an Indian accent and some have hung up when I asked for a number to call back on until today.

    An Indian lady gave me his details and asked me to call her back on:

    Microsoft, Thames Valley Park, Reading

    1721 employee ID

    Amanda Parker


    still sounds dubious and I not call her back, as the "Amanda Parker" does not sound of Indian decent?

    is the normal procedure of Microsoft to call me by phone without previous introduction of myself?

    I recently lost a laptop computer so am curious, could be something to do with it?

  • Problems with FixCleaner, possible scam

    Original title: Fixcleaner
    My system is slow these days, so I'm looking for how to speed up my slow pc in bing search engine and there is an ad that said I can have a faster pc in 3 simple steps, and I open it and I download it.
    on this site they say that the program is completely free, so I think it's better for me, an old man.
    so I want to scan my pc and I know that my pc has so many errors, and I think that I should clean up. so I click on repair this button. and then he says I need to register, so I click on it and it asks me to pay to fix the mistakes then I paid and received a key. I use the key to register the software and remove the errors found, and he asks me to restart my system, I did, after I have can not get into my system, I wanted to say to the system restarts itself all the time, and then I contacted my younger brother, is a computer technician, and he told me that fixcleaner is a malware and he also told me how to restore my system I tried what he told me, nothing works. I have to pay $150 to send my computer in a repair shop for a restoration of the system pc. This time, I can get into the system, but all my photos and my videos have been removed.
    so I contacted fixcleaner for a refund of $150 and $34.95 and $1,000 for my pictures and my videos online and it seems that it is an engine of the auto-robot, so I have to use email to contact 5 days ago on their site that it calls for 2 days, but I have no answer, it seems that they refuse to reimburse my loss.

    Everything here could tell me how to recover my money? Thank you.


    Seems that this is one of the fake scams where they take your money and if something
    your system is damaged.

    In the United States, you can contact the FBI, Attorney general, the police authorities and consumer
    Watch groups. Arm yourself with knowledge.


    You "might" be able to backup your data, but it could have been removed.

    You can save the data and reinstall Windows 7. The hard drive can be put in another computer
    as 2nd car (best) or in an external case USB port. Either allows you to copy the data to removable
    readers of media such as CD, DVD or another USB. There are also professional recovery however companies
    they are expensive.

    Or you can use a boot Ubuntu CD to back up data.

    Use Ubuntu Live CD to backup files from your Windows computer dead

    I hope this helps.

  • Question, possible loss of graphics card driver?

    OK, so about a month or two ago, my computer has a faulty hard drive and I had to replace it with a hard drive in my old laptop, I tried to update directly from the HP site, but could not find the graphics (Radeon 7450) driver. Suddenly, I discovered that windows can get these drivers. Everything was recovered (with the exception of a driver of PCI express), but all my games have been lag, unlike before my hard drive has crashed. Later, I tried to update using Sim drivers, find the PCI express driver and used the graphics card. After this update, I discovered that my graphics card has changed to be Radeon 7450 m for Radeon series 6400 m. I tried to backup, but it unfortunately does not work. Y at - it anway to solve this problem and solve game problems?


    Pavilion g6t - 1 d 00

    Intel i5 processor

    Intel HD 3000 and Radeon switchable graphics 7450 m

    4 GB OF RAM

    hard drive 5400 RPM (allows to have the hard drive 7200 RPM, if it would be a big difference in performance)

    I am a lover of old computer for 12 years (don't judge me), a client for HP for 4 years now. I enjoy helping people with their computers and put a smile on their face
    I work with Windows 7 users, so I'm still learning more about Windows 8.


    I suggest you uninstall all graphics drivers (intel and AMD) and install that driver who as you can see on the info system requirements, support for graphic map of 7450M.

    It is very important to note that you only need to install the AMD driver for your laptop because it is a driver custom made for adapters of switchable graphics from AMD/Intel that has your laptop.

    This file will install the drivers for the two GPUS, and you should never attempt to update the part configuration, Intel graphics (you can periodically receive notifications from Windows Update that new Intel graphics driver is available).

    If we succeed in updating the Intel GPU drivers, they have also successfully caused the AMD GPUS to stop working.

  • Color questions (possibly profile) with some objects


    I am trying to set up my folio, but met with a frustrating problem.

    As the file is a PDF, it's obviously RGB (sRGB to be precise). All my samples have values RGB, all my links have integrated Adobe RGB (1998) or sRGB profiles.

    The main problem, it is a link on a page (PNG - 24 format) shows the correct colors, while on another, it seems to be more blue in the shadow tones. I found that what initially is one of my other objects with active blend modes:

    Two different rectangles with color chart RGB multiply, 62% transparency

    Two identical JPG textures. A background layer and one a top layer which is the value Color Burn

    Once all of these are deleted, the service object returns to its correct tones, but if even one of the items above returns anywhere in the broadcast, the color turns off again. Similarly, if one of these objects are taken to another page, other nuances used (say a solid rectangle) are performed.

    It drives me crazy and I have tried everything I know. Any ideas? I have the feeling that this may have something to do with blending modes, but I do not understand why he would.

    Edition > merger of transparencies space > Document RGB

    Your blenidng methods are a form of transparency, and looks that you mix together in CMYK sapce.

  • Possible MS impostor

    I received several phone calls from a person stating that he must call from a few MS Center during the last 2 months, telling me that my computer sends error messages to their Center MS when I'm on the Internet.    The person calling has a very strong focus (possilbly, India) and I can't understand it nor he seems to understand my questions or inquireies on the problem.  In our dialogue he keeps insisting that I need to connect my computer to it show me the problem.   Given that I can't understand it or understand the problem that I refused his request.

    Is this a possible scam or MS contacts users directly to resolve problems related to the Internet with their MS Centers?

    Over the past 20 years I never heard talk about MS users directly in this way to make meetings.  I suspect that my phone number may have been misused while visiting a Web site.

    Please note that as of today (21 August 12), I rebuilt my hard drive from the original media on the possibliity that my system can be infected with some type of virus or malware.

    Any feed back would be appreciated on the legitimacy on this type of phone call in case I get another phone of this type.
