About Windows Product Key Expired
The reason Windows Product Key Expired advertisements are popping up is because an ad-supported application has contaminated your machine. This is a regular tech-support scam that uses scare tactics to pressure users into calling certain numbers where they would be tricked into giving remote access to their OS. If an advertising-supported software is indeed responsible, expect highly intrusive advertisements. You might have ran into the adware contamination if you didn’t pay attention during freeware installation. The advertisements themselves will not harm your device, as long as you don’t fall for the scam. However, if you did call them, you could be scammed out of a lot of money, or they would install some type of spying malevolent software, and that could lead to stolen personal details. Permitting some dubious technicians remote access to your device can turn out badly, so be cautious. You can be calm that this threat the pop-up is cautioning you about it’s not real, and that your OS is safe. If you want the warnings to no longer pop up, you must delete Windows Product Key Expired.
How does it behave
It is quite possible that you obtained the infection through freeware bundles. If the program has something added to it, you should uncheck it, and it can not be done in Default mode. Instead, pick Advanced (Custom) mode. If you encounter any extra offers, unmark them. And if you feel they could be useful, take into consideration that they didn’t intend to correctly disclose their installation, and you would have installed them by accident. Pay close attention to what you install onto the computer, and how you do it, unless you wish to constantly be stuck having to erase Windows Product Key Expired or similar.
We can guarantee that whatever tech-support scam warning you see on your screen, it’s saying that your system has encountered a problem and needs immediate attention. It can be some type of virus, system error, licensing issues, etc, scammers will come up with all kinds of scenarios. Do not be shocked to see warnings about data loss or leaks as less computer savvy users would be more likely to fall for this scam. In order to prevent those data loss scenarios, the user is asked to call their tech-support, who are pretending to be real to trick you. No legitimate company will ever ask you to call them, so keep that in mind. So if you see such advertisements, claiming to come from Apple or Microsoft, know that it isn’t real. The con artists would try to fool you into providing remote access to your PC, they would then charge you a large amount of money for fixing a problem that does not even exist.
