hi we had a phone call this afternoon which i thought was a bit dodgy , a firm claiming to be computer maintenance services, they said that our computer was running slow in a morning ,and we should follow these instructions , turn computer on go on start click on run and type these letter in , i thought no one as rang up about windows running slow and the computer seems to be running ok . i started to ask where the company was and she richmond surrey , i ask her if you know that our computer was running slow who was our internet provider was , she could no answer that , so i did not take her instructions any further so she then said i can not take this phone call any further and hung up , is this a scam  as any one else had a phone call like this is it a scam  ??? beware
