Solved!

I am receiving messages asking for my user name and password. No, I do not give that information.

Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have been receiving messages on my desktop computer form someone claiming to be from windows security asking for my user name and password. There is also a phone number to call. No, I do not give them that information and I do not call the number. When I click on "close" the message will not go away. The only way I can close out the message is through the task bar. So. My question is. What can I do to stop receiving this message?

I have brought your issue to the attention of an appropriate team within HP. They will likely request information from you in order to look up your case details or product serial number. Please look for a private message from an identified HP contact. Additionally, keep in mind not to publicly post personal information (serial numbers and case details).

Hello Betty. Thanks for the reply and the information.

The product number is: Z5L89AA#ABA

Also am including a screenshot. When I receive this suspicous message the only way that I can close it out is with the taskbar manager.
