Warning has locked up Edge & directs me to a Ph # . Is this a scam?
The warning says:
Suspicious activity detected
Microsoft detected security errors due to unlawful interference on your network
Please contact Microsoft certified experts at this toll free number. 1-844-854-1517
Is this for real? Or is this malware? The number gets a call center identified as Cloud Zone and the tech wanted me to download software called Supremo Remote Desktop to remotely work on my computer.
I said no, but even after reboot, I get the warning shown above if I try to use Edge. Again....Scam of legit tech support?

This surely looks like a scam. Uninstall any suspicious program from the Control Panle. Also run your antivirus software.
