Yes, I have been getting this for a long time. They usually start by saying something
like ''... problem with your Windows PC ...''. The quickest way of getting rid of
them is by saying that I don't have any ''Windows PCs'' as I run Linux. I have
asked them for name, phone number & generally not got far.

I have tried, but since they call from outside the UK everyone just shrugs their
shoulders & says that they can't do anything about it ... so I complained to my
MP saying that this ought to be part of future trade negotiations.
