What is DO NOT PRESS ANY KEY

DO NOT PRESS ANY KEY are bogus alerts, probably the result of an advertising-supported application. This is a typical tech-support scam that attempts to scare users into calling certain numbers where they would be asked to provide remote access to their machine. If these alerts are brought about by an adware, they will be interfering with your browsing constantly. If you don’t pay attention to how you install freeware, it isn’t surprising you encountered an ad-supported program. You just need to not fall for these scams, the ads are not dangerous themselves. The scammers on the other side of the phone would request remote access to your system, and then ensure that they have solved the problem (which does not even exist in the first place), for which they would charge you a lot of money. Allowing some suspicious technicians to have remote access to your device can turn out to be a very bad idea, so you must be careful. You can be calm that this threat the alert is warning you about it’s not real, and that your operating system is safe. When you uninstall DO NOT PRESS ANY KEY, the advertisements should go away, and your browsing will no longer be disrupted.

Why are the pop-ups appearing

It is pretty possible that you obtained the threat through freeware packages. It arrives adjoined as an optional item which Default settings do not show, and if you don’t see it, you can’t unmark it, which will authorize it to install. So as to be able to unmark the offers, choose Advanced or Custom mode. If Advanced settings disclose something, ensure everything is unmarked. And if you feel they could be of use, keep in mind that they didn’t intend to correctly disclose their installation, and you would have accidentally installed them. It is important that you pay attention when installing software because otherwise, you will have to terminate DO NOT PRESS ANY KEY or similar regularly.

Whatever warning you are seeing on your screen, we can assure that it is saying that your PC has ran into an issue and needs immediate attention. Scammers warn you about a variety of different of problems, such as malicious programs, licensing or computer problems. It is also common for the alert to include warnings about data loss or leaks since this scares users into reacting. In order to prevent those data loss scenarios, the user is required to call scammers who are posing as tech-support. Keep in mind that real software or security company will never ask users to call them. So if you get a warning from Apple, Microsoft, or some other technology company, and are required to call them, you are being tricked. These con artists would try to convince you that there is a lot wrong with your machine, and that they are the only ones who can resolve the problem, which of course, would cost you a lot. Quite a few people fall for these scams because they might be less experienced when it comes to computers, which is why tech-support scams are still around. Even if you do not pay attention to the first advert, it would show up again and again later on, so it’s not hard to see why users fall for these scams. If you aren’t convinced legitimate companies would not use browser alerts to warn you about malicious programs, you could always investigate the given number. We can promise that the first couple of results will be of users talking about being scammed. Now that it has been confirmed to be a scam, you may ignore the alert without worrying about harm to your operating system, and can deal with the actual issue. If the warnings are appearing regularly, you will have to find and eliminate DO NOT PRESS ANY KEY adware.
