    Hello
    
    Thank you for your question and reaching out.
    
    If it is asking to Call some number then do not call any number  as it can be spam or your computer may be infected with malware or virus.
    
    1. Please change your Computer account password.
    
    2. Perform full scan of your PC with Antivirus and Microsoft Safety Scanner and enable Windows Firewall.
