    I just got as call from someone claiming to be from windows central. He stated that someone was accessing my computer remotely. He wanted me to go to my computer - I hung up on him at that point.

    Hanging up was the right thing to do.
    Looks like scammers might be using the good name of Windows Central to steal peoples info.
