On 8/18 I was STUPID enough to answer the phone and believe these Indian accented guys who said they were from Windows Tech Support. After about 1 hour having a "bad" gut feeling & questioning their authenticity, I let them get into my computer w/Log me in Rescue, talk me into typing in the "run" block> www.ammyy.com, and after NOT buying a "Windows Upgrade @ $169/5yrs (then price came down to $100, then $50). When my computer re-booted, it was in "Safe Mode+ in middle of screen I got a box titled "Windows XP Startup Password" and it says>"This computer is configured to require a P/W to start up. Please enter startup password below". NEVER had this issue EVER w/ANY computer. ANYONE have an idea how to get rid of. MS Tech doesn't. HELP-HELP-HELP !!!
