While I was waiting for a call on Skype, a loud voice yelled;URGENT YOUR COMPUTER IS AT RISK. It directed me to a website:helposg.com. I saw it was a download, which I didn't do. I ran my Norton 360 and it showed no problem. My Skype account shows only my contacts can contact me. Howdid they get through? How can I protect my computer from these strangers?

No idea how you managed to get the website, according to 'whois.domaintools.com'

Domain helposg.com Date Registered: 2013-2-11 Date Modified: 2013-2-11 Expiry Date: 2014-2-11

helposg.com is (registered and no website)

Could have been this, http://www.alexa.com/siteinfo/helpos.com

Another way of phishing?
