    Message from Microsoft is it genuine? 16th May 18 at 9:27 AM
    A message has popped up on my laptop from this address.

    http://safety.microsoft.com.ofnzjgronn.tubtaly8bwpgge.tra de/ow/en/index.php

    It says I have virus and phishing problems, before I click on it is it genuine?

    It's a scam

    It's probably not an infection but a pop up on another site

    For safety though do a full scan with malwarebytes

    Check the URL carefully up to the FIRST slash

    safety.microsoft.com.ofnzjgronn.tubtaly8bwpgge.trade/

    I have highlighted the origin address in purple.
    Completely ignore the stuff at the front about Microsoft.com - it's what's just before the first slash which is important!
