Log In For Speed Scam
If you receive a call from Log In For Speed, or the PC Doctor, it is a SCAM! No one from India will ever call you and tell you your computer is infected and running slowly. They will have you look at your Event Viewer (which is ALWAYS full of meaningless errors) and claim all the errors are viruses. Then they will ask you to allow them to remote into your computer. DO NOT BELIEVE THEM!!!
They will not only plant bugs, they will take your money, your credit card numbers and passwords, and they'll charge you a yearly fee to do it.
