High Priority Message
If all of a sudden you see a blue screen with error codes on your screen but it comes from your browser, it is possible that High Priority Message is about to scam you. We are here to warn you that this is simply another fake alert that tries to sell you a useless service or supposed security software. This type of aggressive marketing is also known as a technical support scam because that is what it is indeed. We have seen dozens of similar fake alerts emerge in the past months and years, including "Possible Suspicious Activity," "Rdntrojanhacking File Detected," and "Google Security Warning." The main purpose of this fake warning message is to make you believe that your computer is infected or there is a system error that needs immediate fixing. Clearly, there is real connection between the blue background in your browser filled with error codes and warnings, and the authentic blue screen of death, which comes from your operating system. It is simply used by these schemers to create an atmosphere where you could actually believe that there is something terribly wrong and you will have to call the telephone number this fake alert gives you in order to get Microsoft certified technical support. However, you would only waste your time and money. It is possible that the only threat there is on your system is the malware that may be responsible for redirecting you to the webpage that displays this fake alert. We recommend that you remove High Priority Message as soon as possible because it will keep annoying you until you do so and thus make your browsing experience a real nightmare.
There are actually two ways for you to get redirected to "criticalwarningerrortgfn.xyz/main4/," which is the malicious page responsible for this fake alert. The better version is that you make the mistake of clicking on questionable third-party content while browsing. You may end up on a suspicious website, for example, after running a web search on a free program or a cracked file. If you are not familiar with torrent and freeware pages, you can easily end up on a malicious one whose only purpose is to infect your computer with a bundle of malware threats. However, it is also possible that you will simply be redirected to a malicious webpage like this one with the fake alert. You only need to click on a fake download button, a fake notification, or any of the many third-party advertisements. But you may also click on a corrupted link on a modified search results page presented by a questionable search engine. So when you click on the wrong ad or link while surfing and you get redirected to this fake alert page, there is a slight chance that your computer is not infected at all. In this case, you can close your browser window the moment you see this warning page, and it should not come back again unless you keep clicking on the wrong content while surfing.
The worse situation is when your computer is already infected with malware like adware programs, browser hijackers, or sometimes even potentially unwanted programs, which could be capable of redirecting you to such webpages. When such infections are present on your computer, you should assume that they are not alone since these threats are usually bundled together. As we have mentioned, you can drop such a bundle onto your system when you click on the wrong button or any other third-party content on shady websites. It is even easier for you to infect your system with more malicious programs when it has already been infiltrated by adware or a browser hijacker. This is why it is so important to scan your PC with a proper online malware scanner after you delete High Priority Message from your system.
When you see a blue background on your screen that has error codes and warning messages trying to convince you to call a certain telephone number ("1-800-158-029 "), you should make sure that this comes from your operating system and is not simply generated by a scammer website. Most likely, Microsoft would never try to contact you this way and ask you to call them, right? This fake alert claims that there has been a serious issue with your system and you should take it seriously if you want to use your computer. Unfortunately, if you call this phone number, you will not talk to any certified technician that could help you. It is more likely that you will talk to a salesperson who will try to sell you a product claiming to be the only help you need to fix your system errors. You should never believe such warnings because you could easily waste your money unnecessarily or even disclose sensitive information with schemers that could be used to attack your computer with a serious threat or even use your personal details for criminal purposes. We advise you to act ASAP and remove High Priority Message from your system.
There are two things you can do manually. First, you can check your install programs list in Control Panel to find any recently installed suspicious application and uninstall them. Second, you can reset your browsers to eliminate all threats associated with browsers, which may also be responsible for such a redirection. Please use our guide below if you need assistance with these steps. Remember that there could be several threats on your computer right now. If you would like to protect your PC effectively from future attacks as well, we suggest that you install a professional malware removal application like SpyHunter as soon as possible.
