About this threat

The reason alerts are showing up is because of an advertising-supported application infection. These false adverts commonly aim to deceive users into dialing alleged tech-support who would first ask for remote access to your computer, and then install overpriced, possibly useless software. If an advertising-supported application is indeed responsible, expect highly invasive ads. An adware is often attached to free programs, and if you don’t untick it, it will install alongside the application. Just to be clear, the ads are pretty harmless by themselves, and if you don’t call the scammers, no harm will be done. If you did call them, you would have to deal with people who scam others for a living, and they would pretend to fix your device, and then ask for an unreasonable amount of money. You should never call the numbers in these dubious warnings, and you should also never provide access to your OS to questionable people. You can be calm that this contamination the advertisement is warning you about it isn’t real, and that your operating system is safe. If you want to prevent the irritating adverts, all you need to do is delete

What does it do

Since adware installation seldom happens knowingly, it generally spreads via freeware. It is added as an optional offer which Default settings do not show, and if you don’t see it, you can not unmark it, which is essentially like providing the added offers the authorization to install. Advanced or Custom mode are the settings you should opt for. If Advanced settings expose something, ensure you unmark all the items. And while those items might not necessarily be harmful, if they did not inform you about their installation properly, they do not belong on your operating system. If you want to avoid having to delete and similar regularly, pay attention to how you install applications.

These types of fake pop-ups want to deceive users into believing that their PC has came across some type of issue. It may be cautioning you about a virus, system error, licensing issues, etc, con artists will use all kinds of situations. It’s also common for the alert to include warnings about data loss or leaks since this scares users into reacting. So as to stop those data loss scenarios, the user is required to call con artists who are pretending to be tech-support. Keep in mind that no real software or security company will ever ask users to call them. So if you get an advert from Apple, Microsoft, or some other technology company, and are required to call them, you’re being tricked. The con artists would attempt to trick you into providing remote access to your machine, they would then charge you a lot of money for fixing  a problem that is not even real. While more computer knowledgeable users will immediately understand it is a scam, less computer savvy people may fall for them, which is why those scams still exist. Even if you do not pay attention to the first pop-up, it would show up over and over again later on, so it is not hard to imagine why some people would fall for these scams. If you are still in doubt about whether the alert is legitimate, you can always use a search engine to investigate, and that would clear up all the doubts. Likely, the very first result will prove that it is a scam. So don’t pay any attention to the warnings and just deal with the problem. There’s nothing to worry about if you’ve ran into it once, but if you get them all the time, you will need to delete ad-supported program.
