Just had a phone call from 'Computer maintenance department online', foreign-sounding people, to tell me my PC is infected in some way. They did give a phone no., which I wrote down. Anyone else heard of them please? These sort of calls worry me a bit.

Ignore it - just a well-known scam!

I had something like this too about 3 Weeks ago an "overseas" worker telling me I have a problem with my Windows XP Computer, I just put the phone down on him.
