they don't have my number.

I had some weird explorer crashes though yesterday that I never encountered before in the 6 years I am running this installation.

I did some searching about this.

Apparantly, it's a scam to get you to buy services that you don't want or need.

These calls aren't from Microsoft either.

All eventwvr.exe does is shows your event log on your computer.

Just hang up on them if you get a call like this.

so, they wanted to show him, he has problems on event viewer. Supper, there are always errors, also on a fine working system, it's just normal. Then they will say: "For only 20 Dollars/Month we will fix you problems" (with a Spyware/Zombiebot). LOL
