  1. The people running this scam cold call you at home purporting to be calling on behalf of Microsoft, that your system is rife with virus' and they can help you eradicate them by down loading their software. I received the second of such calls today where the woman, who I believed was Indian made the same pitch. When I told her she wasn't part of Microsoft but was trying to sell bogus antivirus software on behalf of Guardian she exclaimed "Oh s***" and hung up. If Microsoft aren't aware their name is being taken in vain they soon will be, when I tell them. Avoid this like the plague.
