About this infection

Windows Security Essentials Have Detected Issue Scam false warnings are appearing on your screen because you either got rerouted from a questionable site, or an advertising-supported program is installed. The main aim of these fake alerts is to trick users into dialing supposed tech-support numbers where scammers would try to get remote access to a device or sell useless tools or services. If an advertising-supported application is behind these adverts, they will be interrupting your browsing constantly. An ad-supported application can usually be installed accidentally, during free applications installation. No need to worry about the adverts somehow harming your operating system, and as long as you do not call the supposed tech support, you will be fine. If you did call them, you would have to deal with competent con artists who would pretend to fix your system, and then ask for an unreasonable amount of money. You should never call the numbers in these questionable warnings, and you should be cautious about who you grant remote access to your machine. You can be calm that this infection indicated in the warning it’s not real, and that your device is safe. The advertisements will only stop popping when you erase Windows Security Essentials Have Detected Issue Scam, so the sooner you do that, the better.

What does it do

An advertising-supported software is generally found packaged with other applications. If the program has something added to it, you need to uncheck it, and it can’t be done in Default mode. Instead of Default, you should use Advanced (Custom) settings. If Advanced settings disclose something, ensure everything is unchecked. And if you feel they could be useful, remember that they didn’t intend to properly disclose their installation, and you would have unknowingly installed them. It’s crucial that you pay attention to how you install programs and where you get them from because otherwise, you will end up having to terminate Windows Security Essentials Have Detected Issue Scam or similar regularly.

The bogus ads want to fool people into believing that there are severe problems with their device. It may be some kind of virus, system error, licensing issues, etc, scammers will use all kinds of situations. Expect to see alerts about data loss or leaks since less computer savvy users would be more likely to fall for this scam. A phone number would also be conveniently supplied, which would supposedly connect you to tech-support people who would fix the issue. Take into consideration that real software or security company would never ask users to call them. For example, if Apple or Microsoft is requesting you to call them, it is most definitely a scam. The people behind these scams would request to access your PC remotely, they would then attempt to repair issues that do not actually exist and charge you a large amount of money. Tech-support scams aren’t a risk to everyday computer users because they do not even resemble legitimate alerts but less computer experienced users might fall for them because they haven’t happened upon one before. Even if you dismiss the first advertisement, it would show up again and again later on, so someone falling for such a scam isn’t hard to imagine. However, if you simply use a dependable search engine to investigate it, everything would become clear instantly. Most results will contain comments from victims about being tricked. Now that you are certain it is a scam, just close the warnings and deal with what’s bringing them about. If the pop-ups are appearing constantly, you will need to locate and terminate Windows Security Essentials Have Detected Issue Scam ad-supported software.
