YouTube doesn't have a customer phone number that is answered by an agent. Instead, GetHuman-droesink will need to dig through the advice provided by YouTube, other customers and consumer advocacy websites like GetHuman. Here are some instructions we've written for similar issues- hopefully GetHuman-droesink can let us know if they help or not.

The issue in GetHuman-droesink's own words
Hello, I was surfing the internet last evening and clicked on a link that had malware attached to it. It downloaded much information from my computer and I couldn't even opt out of the page that it took me to. I believe that it was attached to this link:*www.youtube.com*watch?v*MXIktnOnSRg*Would you be able to check it out? I hope my security information has not been compromised. My son ran some software on my MaC this morning, and hopefully removed everything. The page that came up said to contact Apple support right away-that I had a virus on my computer. I am sure they are getting money out of people who fall for this. But the upsetting thing is.... I could not get the page to close. I am not sure which email I used, so I will put one in the box and another which you could check too. *****@***.com
