anyone ever get a call from an Indian guy claiming he's from Microsoft?
@Super CHIVAS, its an illegal scam, you are actually supposed to report them to the police if they call
@Super CHIVAS, yeah, they tried telling me my laptop that i literally got the day they called had a virus, bs
@Crometer, I've read they use fake phone numbers, plus we can't really do anything since they're in India (I think)
@Super CHIVAS, I had fun trolling him, he got mad and hung up xD (I use Linux) loooll
@Super CHIVAS, I almost fell for it once when I was younger, then they called again and I hung up, next time I'm just gunna be like "MOM, MOM I GOT MY DICK STUCK IN THE OVEN, GET THE SPATULA!!"
@Super CHIVAS, they told my dad he needed to throw his computer out the window because it had a virus.
@Bjorn Helgden, same, I'll just pretend to be a total computer idiot and piss them off
@gRAPE juices, yeah, plus MS doesn't call anyone, they actually get more money if you buy a new computer
I got a call from "Windows Company"... I have a iPhone.
@Super CHIVAS, Yeah. He ended up being a survivor from a shipwreck and we chatted about his tiger friend.
@Super CHIVAS, Funny story about Indians, there were a couple of Indians going round my village area who claimed their car was broken down on the road, when you get out to help BAM! They mug you and steal your car.
@Super CHIVAS, My dad got a call from them, and he actually talked to the guy for half an hour when I was telling him to hang up. He was at the website when they take control of the computer when I hung up for him. And they told him that they could shut down his computer "Permanently". Bullshat.
@Hermoso Peralta, Yea my aunt lost everything on her laptop, and they literally fried her laptop from their servera somehow to those guys a couple weeks ago. Sucks soo bad
Or you just wack it really hard
@D0N RAM0N, We got a call once, and my dad let them take control of the computer. He opened up the web browser, and before he could do anything, my dad shut off the computer. The guy started freaking out asking what happened, and my dad said that it just turned off. He has been calling back for months from a blocked number.
Thtory of my life
@Mike Tythonth Lithp, at first I was like "what?", then I read your username, have an upvote
Naw, I normally punch it, kick it, slap it and throw it out the window... Then I buy a new one
Turn it off and then turn it back on

Fixing computers for DUMMIES:
Restart your computer, dumbass.
End of book.
Or press all the keys a million times.
*get new computer.
I really thought hammer would have made the pie.
"Have you tried turning it off and on again"
*Indian Voice* Did you try pressing G7?
I just scream at it
True story. *raises glass*
10 years ago it was reformat the hard drive. I was told that numerous times by tech support and never did it. I always figured out an alternative.
My laptop has blue screened twice and all I had to do was remove the battery and put it back in
No grandma! Not like that!
Make sure it's plugged in first.
