Faster Recovery from Scammers
« on: May 26, 2023, 04:48:11 am »
If you have not seen the Windows screen popup that says, "Do Not Shut Down Your Computer, it has been stopped to protect you and you need to call Microsoft at this number before you do anything else", you probably will soon.

The only thing that has stopped or been interfered with is your browser, so to get back to work the fastest way just type "Ctrl Shift Escape" to open a window where you can bring up the Task Manager and select your Browser and click End Task. Everything else will not be effected, so you can then open your Browser again and go back to what you were doing without rebooting and reloading everything.

It took me several stressful sessions to get mad enough to dig up this method, so I just wanted to pass it along.

Thanks for the information.  I have not seen this message and would not know what to do if I had before you posted this.

That's the keyboard shortcut to open the Task Manager window Sonic exe. It will help us close programs faster.

Thanks, oldbuddy. I turn my computer off and then back on again, but I'll try your method. Those things are really creepy.

 Really? Can you really stop scammers from bothering you?

I did not claim you can, only that you can speed up recovery when they do.
