In his heavy accent, he tells me that there have been multiple reports coming from my computer indicating that I have a problem. I say, “Really? My computer is sending you messages? I’m sitting right there, why doesn’t it tell me directly? Are you saying that my computer doesn’t trust me? What else is my computer saying to you?
