The chances are good that your device has been "hijacked" by someone using ransomeware. Trend Micro has a program/solution for this. Contact them by phone immediately and DO NOT talk to or pay these people to give control of your computer back to you. Trend will help. Good luck!
As @woodartisan55, and our help document mentioned: Do not allow someone to take control of your computer especially from suspicious third party support. However, if you have been scammed, we suggest calling our support center directly to help you more efficiently, as they're equipped with better tools to diagnose and troubleshoot. Please see the link below on how to contact our support center: Ways to Contact Support (look for the "Call Standard Support" section at bottom left and choose " North America ")
