i explain all... i received call from my brother, abroad. and he said he received email from you to send money . bcs i am in trouble. and then so many other who knows me sent same.. when i login to my hotmail account. its all in CHINES language. i immediatly chat MS and than they find out all about . ms share my screen and all so they advice me to do first this and they investigate more
Well ms told me to do this first, who ever Hack this email they can access to your computer too bcs they know your ip address now. i dont know much about these, what ever they told i will follows, and i wont comp too, i can buy a new hub and change mac and ip first
I’d be interested to know the correct contact number for Microsoft. What number did you call?
On the subject of changing IP address, @apcyberax is correct changing your IP address is not necessary, whoever gave you that information is wrong. You make the simple mistake of assuming that when you call a support line, that they give you correct information. This is evident from the fact that you state:
Yes , they will if i asked and explain, they advice me to switch off your router for 10 min
We both have a very good understanding of VMs setup and I can assure you that unless you turn the hub off for a good deal longer than 10 minutes and at the correct point in the DHCP cycle, you won’t get a new IP. Even if you do manage to turn the hub off and let the lease expire, unless someone is given your old IP address, there is a strong possibility you’d get the old one back too.
it sounds as though Microsoft subscribe to the same lowest common denominator in support staff as VM do, assuming the number you called was actually Microsoft. In short if something falls outside of the scope of their training, they make stuff up.

Thank you all, i did not call, i chat on line with ms and then they share my screen, also i call VM and explain they advice me to unplug router for 10 min , but i turnoff all night its comes up with same old. yes i know vm not sell hub as i said i dont know much about these tech word hub or router, wot ever vm provide me was superhub3 black new one. i wants same new one i will pay for this hub/router wot ever you called .thanks
