Which I just intervene?

I have four old iMac with the latest version of Yosemite.  She was entered in the URL of foxnews and accidentally put a g or y in front of it and a window pops up saying that suspicious activity was detected. The dialog box had the name of my ISP, but not their logo.  I was invited to dial 888 for technical support.  When I did, I was cut after that I pressed "1" (for technical support), and then ten seconds later I get a phone call area code 631, where a woman with a Mideast focus and with a baby crying in the background was asked what was the problem.  She tried to sell me a $ 50 security program.  I refused and hung up, and then I noticed that a few words in the dialog box have been misspelled.  I couldn't Quit Safari and when I tried to force it out and restart, it would go back on the same page.  So I rebooted the machine, but it still happens.  I unplugged my external drives and I use Chrome, but no one knows what just happened to me?  What should I do?

After force quit Safari, restart Safari while holding the SHIFT key.

This kind of message is a scam.

  • Contacts, which I just added to the phone does not show the phone but visible on Mac

    I don't know when, in recent weeks, what happens to the show started, but I just noticed today. I just added a few contacts to my iphone race 5 the latest iOS, and when I find or search in the list, they appear. For example, I added a person whose surname Honda, and when I search, I can only find the name of the Honda dealer I've added years previously, not the new contact with the surname Honda.

    However, when I look in my mini Mac contacts, new people are there! I can't understand why they are not appearing on the iPhone, which is where I really need them to be.


    Hello Andvari,

    Thank you for using communities of Apple Support.

    I understand your position when you add a contact on your iPhone 5 it does not appear in the Contacts application, but appears on your Mac. I know how important it is that you are able to see all the contacts that you create on your iPhone.

    I check the Contacts and make sure that all groups are selected. Press Contacts > groups (upper-left). Make sure that all your groups have a control on the right side. Also, make sure you see hide all Contacts. If you see all the Contacts, click View all Contacts.

    Best regards

  • I have a similar problem to that which is just below this question, but instead of without hard drive.,.

    I had XP repair / installation of restoration to the point where the key is installed and the system explodes. It started just after the last update. My problem is that it is juxtaposed against the rejection of the so-called O.S. of Super i7 we debug for you anyway. Thus, this computer is for a gentleman who is blind and I paid so he could be built for him and now he has nothing after a simple update. What happens if something is microsoft going to do to restore the OS for systems that have bombed positions your updates? There need is a new 32-bit OS, because its technology of rehabilitation programs are 32-bit. What can be done and I need to talk with? He is about to lose an opportunity business due to this accidental loss of O.S. Milwaukee, WI, I heard several other reports of people losing their O.S. the same evening, after updates also.

    Wow... so you want to help or do you just want to complain?

    OK, so the first thing, what exactly is the problem?  "the question just below" on my list is on pages Web support is not right.  If you need to start by explaining the problem or a link to the thread that you are referencing.

    If you think that the problem is with an update, this day is this?  And the State of updates of bombing a system...   Well you have to think that there are probably countless of possible hardware configurations for the PC.  If Microsoft (and I don't like or not use all of their programs) wrote the software, but cannot test everything.  You will end up with a few things not working not properly.  Especially when you have an OS that is ten years old.  And I think that if you really read the EULA for XP it shows probably they are not responsible for loss of data or things like that.  If you do not like Windows go get Ubuntu or Linux... or spend 3 x as much and get a Mac (just don't ever try to the modernization of the equipment).

    So if the PC is used for a company, it should have some type of running on an external drive backup program.  At a minimum, the good tech half who is setting up a PC for someone will do it.  So I would suggest going to the backup for the eve of the issue and restore (is there a backup?).

    OK, so if you have no backup. Boot in safe mode do a system restore.  If you cannot start in safe mode, then turn on "disable reboot on system failure" and the error code.  Then get the error code.  Or after return and someone will help you with solutions.  QQ learn manage!

  • can anyone help me find an app for the Zeen which has just the time and date? Don't want to google.

    I don't know how to use the apps since all I found is on android, but apparently the Zeen is not compatible with the android apps.  I have google calendar, but it doesn't work and want to only the time and date is displayed.  I followed all the directions for adding applications, but they do not work or I can't understand them.

    Salvation of theeagles,

    The Zeen is unable to access the Android Market, but it's an Android device.  There is a market for this called SlideME, and you should have the icon for it in your apps section.  I have a station also, and I'm just a normal clock on mine.

    Here is a link to SlideME, if you want to see what applications are available: http://slideme.org/
