    i bought the computer some 7 years ago they say that support expires after 5 years.
    I asked why can't I just buy windows 7 & and a new antivirus?
    they said the same thing would still happen...you got to register with us, then he gives me the web address to their technician site to connect to and the number to do it. www.logmein123.com
    this was freaking me out too much and i just ended the conversation and unhooked the phone.

    They will ask you for personal information don't give them anything. They are lying.

    You probably sold something online, and had your phone number posted there.
