I received an email from Microsoft that my Windows 7 had 2 viruses.  I ran my TrendMicro scan which showed no threats.  Should I be concerned?

Hi bhende33, 

This sounds like a scam to me, which has been going around as of late. I believe Microsoft is not sending this kind of information. We have a new free online service that can quickly let you know if the email you received is suspicious. You can copy and paste the content here:
