When Microsoft really does call you on the phone

Kathleen Atkins

Forum member marshallman reports to the Security & Scams forum this week his recent experience with an “I’m from Microsoft” telephone scam. He wasn’t looking for a solution; he just wanted the impressions of others with similar experiences.

Happily, one genuine Microsoft call — anyone could have received — came with a rational explanation.

The following links are this week’s most interesting Lounge threads, including several new questions for which you might have answers:

Office Applications    
General Productivity Office 2010 SP2 update problems
Word Processing Word 2010 printing doesn’t follow paper-tray selection
