Comcast Cable Warning Alert
There are several reasons users find Comcast Cable Warning Alert displayed on their screens. First, they open dubious domains containing the fake alert, they get redirected to it from another website they open themselves, or they click on malicious links automatically opening the website containing Comcast Cable Warning Alert. In some cases, users see irritating fake alerts on their screens no matter what they do. If you recognize yourself, you should know that you might have some kind of untrustworthy application opening the fake alert on your screen periodically installed on the system. In such a case, the only way to make the fake alert disappear is the complete untrustworthy software removal. Some users manage to get rid of Comcast Cable Warning Alert by simply closing their web browsers too. You should try this first – close your web browser with the fake alert and do not allow it to restore the previous browsing session. If the fake pop-up still reappears, find and delete untrustworthy software from your computer. We cannot promise that it will be an easy task.
Without a doubt, Comcast Cable Warning Alert is a part of the tech-support scam. Its primary goal is to convince users to dial the provided telephone number. Specialists working at pcthreat.com say that there might be several versions of the fake message, but all of them will try to push users into making a call. You might be told that malicious software has been detected on your computer and, as a consequence, the machine will be disabled to prevent further damage to the network, but we can assure you that you do not have malware Comcast Cable Warning Alert has informed you about on the system. It only contains the Comcast logo to look credible, but, in reality, it is not associated with this company in any way. Comcast Cable Warning Alert promoted +1 (866) 475-7161 at the time of research, but you might see another telephone number indicated on the pop-up. In any event, ignore it completely. Users who decide to dial the telephone number to get malware that does not even exist on their PCs deleted from their systems make a huge mistake because the chances are high that cyber criminals are waiting for them at the other end of the line. They will not miss an opportunity to convince them to purchase useless software, or pay for the service they do not need. Also, users might get a huge telephone bill if they decide to dial the telephone number they see because it might be a premium-rate number. Finally, users might be convinced to provide remote access to their PCs so that “specialists” could delete harmful malware for them. If cyber criminals manage to connect to users’ computers remotely, they can do anything they like on them. Therefore, we keep repeating users not to fall for various warnings they find displayed to them when they surf the Internet. On top of that, security software must be enabled on their systems 24/7.
If you cannot remove Comcast Cable Warning Alert from your screen by closing the web browser you use, you might have untrustworthy software installed on the system. According to our experienced specialists, it usually turns out that users seeing fake alerts periodically have some kind of advertising-supported application (adware) installed on their computers. It might be any adware, so we cannot tell you what you should look for on your system. You could have downloaded an ad-supported program from its official or a file-sharing website, but since these programs are often spread bundled, it could have been installed on your system next to other applications. There are no guarantees that this will not happen again soon, so do not leave your system unprotected.
In some cases, users can get rid of Comcast Cable Warning Alert easily, i.e. by clicking X in the top-right corner of their browsers, but we are sure that some users will find it impossible to get rid of it by doing that since this alert will keep reappearing. In such a case, we highly recommend checking all programs listed in Control Panel and deleting those suspicious ones. On top of that, the affected browser must be reset to its default settings. If nothing changes, it would be best to use an automated malware remover to clean the system.
