AppleCare And Warranty Scam

If you see a warning that tells you about suspicious activity on your PC, the chances are high that you have encountered AppleCare And Warranty Scam. Just like similar scams, it wants you to believe that security-related problems have emerged and, as a consequence, you need to take action right away. We can assure you that a “harmful virus” AppleCare And Warranty Scam tells you about does not exist on your computer. Instead, the chances are high that you have an advertising-supported application (adware) installed on your computer if the fake warning is displayed to you periodically. Of course, you could have opened a dubious domain with this scam too. In the latter case, you will just need to close your browser and do not allow it to restore websites visited previously. Sadly, it turns out that users have untrustworthy software installed on their computers more often. If you cannot eliminate AppleCare And Warranty Scam from your screen once and for all by simply closing the web browser you use, it means that you will have to find and erase untrustworthy software from your MAC computer. We are sure it will be easier to do this if you read this article till the end and then use our step-by-step manual removal instructions.

AppleCare And Warranty Scam will try to convince you that harmful malicious software has infiltrated your computer. It claims that it might damage the firewall at any time, “which can result in data loss or hard drive crash.” Yes, this warning is quite convincing, but we are sure that there is nothing to worry about because it was made just to scare users into dialing a telephone number it promotes. As our specialists have noticed, it usually leaves 1-888-621-0834 for users, but the number used might change. Do not dial the telephone number you see on the displayed warning because the chances are high that you will contact cyber criminals instead of the technical support that will help you to remove malicious software from your computer. We are sure they will try to convince you that you need to purchase antimalware software to delete malware from your computer. The tool you purchase from them might be completely useless or even malicious. Because of this, you should definitely not buy it. Do not pay money to cyber criminals even if they promise to clean the computer remotely for you because there is nothing to delete from it. It is more likely that personal information will be stolen from your computer if you grant bad people access to your PC. Finally, we cannot promise you that you will not get a huge telephone bill after making a call.

If you cannot get rid of AppleCare And Warranty Scam by closing the web browser you use to surf the web, you must have malicious software active on your computer. We are not surprised at all that so many users do not know anything about its presence because untrustworthy software tends to slither onto users’ computers illegally. If the appearance of AppleCare And Warranty Scam is really associated with some kind of advertising-supported application, it is very likely that it has entered your system bundled with third-party software. Of course, you could have downloaded it from the web by mistake too. It does not really matter now how untrustworthy software has entered your computer because you need to remove it from your system in any event. When you are done removing AppleCare And Warranty Scam, make sure you install security application on your system so that other threats could not enter it and display another fake alert on your screen ever again.

You should first try to remove AppleCare And Warranty Scam from your screen by closing your web browser; however, if this does not help at all, i.e. the fake warning reopens, you will need to find and erase malicious software from your computer. Check the list of all programs installed and delete all suspicious ones. Then, reset your browser to default settings. If you cannot locate any dubious software, use an automated malware remover to clean your system. Needless to say, you will first need to acquire it.
