Scam? Calls from SB3 Inc on inf junk files?
Last 2 days been getting calls from SB3 Inc in Ridgewood NJ asking me to check certain services to see if they are running. Also additional calls on my wife's computer. Been blowing them off, but today I decided to play along for a while. I checked on MS site and they are a certified partner. http://pinpoint.micros
They claim that they are calling all Windows users to try and correct an issue that allows .inf junk files to be accumulated in Windows/Inf folder that don't get deleted and accumulate over time. These files are typically driver files and some may be necessary.
The services they have you check include Windows Update, Windows Installer and Software Protection among others to check and see if these services are stopped.
They want to transfer me to Microsoft to access their server to correct these issues.
I ask for a MS article that explains this issue and couldn't get one.
I find it hard to believe that MS would care enough about a computer wasting space accumulating unnecessary files and trying to correct the problem. I have probably left a few things out, but you get the idea.
I did my googling and found similar type scam calls, but not the same.
I just aint buying this.
Thought I would pass it along and see if anyone have any info on this.
