recieved a screen on my mac whilst using hotmail via your browser - it looked like a standard update thing so I clicked a few seconds later I recieved a call, it all sounded very dubious (They were from microsoft ! apparently I had mistakenly downloaded some dodgy info) so I ended the call and restarted my computer and have now installed security software for protection. But clearly some dubious party was trying to hack into my computer and may have been partially succesful via your software at 11.17am uk time

This does not make sense. I think you feel victim to a scam that is making it's rounds that scammers will call your phone, tell you that your computer is infected, and to download protection.

It is just coincidence that your computer was updating at the same time.
