I received a pop up message from Microsoft that my computer is infected with a malware virus. Is it for real or a scam? I thought my computer was protected by Trend Micro for this. It happened while trying to watch a video on facebook.

Hello sharonsmartin68,

Welcome to the Community.

It looks like it is a Technical Support Scam. The message in it is fake and is only trying to scare you. Further information about this is best explained here:
