I just had a call from a desk in New York? Saying that he was from Microsoft technical service stating there are many errors on my system where showing hackers have gotten into my system. He was able to see my files and I saw the many errors and was not able to delete them. He was going to do it for me but I would not let him take control of the system. Can you tell what is going on here???

There are several legitimate third party technical support organizations that provide PC services. You may choose to use their services, but we recommend to research about these companies before contacting them. Most legitimate services will clearly state that they are a third party technical support provider, and any claims of official representation or partnership with a vendor should be checked and/or validated directly with the vendor themselves.
