Microsoft Security essentials +1-888-496-5150

Seeing the famous, or rather infamous, blue screen of death on your computer screen cannot be a good sign and Microsoft Security essentials +1-888-496-5150, a new malware infection, uses this to trick you. No matter how authentic and scary this blue screen is with all the error codes and warnings, you should know that this is completely fake. This infection is indeed a fake alert or as we also call it: a technical support scam. We have found that this fake alert is very similar to previous attacks, including “License has Expired +1-888-303-5121” and “Windows Support. Call TollFree: +1 -855-441-4421.” The main idea of this infection is to shock you and then offer you a “way out” of a made-up system problem. This “magical” fix comes as a telephone number that you are supposed to call. For a lot of users this may seem like the only hope when encountering this fake alert. However, we are here to help you remove Microsoft Security essentials +1-888-496-5150 unless you want to send your money down the drain for some useless software or service you may be scammed to go for.

Seeing this malware infection on your screen can mean that a malicious program has found its way to enter your system. This infection can come in a free software bundle, which may contain other malicious software installers as well. Therefore, if you find this fake alert on your computer, there could be adware programs, browser hijackers, Trojans, and potentially unwanted applications, too. It is always risky to install a software bundle because you may let malicious components on board if you are not cautious enough. We recommend that you always go for custom or advanced installation options because a lot of times this is the only way for you to see the real contents of a bundle. Otherwise, it is also advisable to read the agreement before you mark “I agree” because it may also reveal certain changes to be made to your browser settings and so on.

You can also easily infect your system with a bundle of threats if you click on corrupt third-party ads. It is possible when there is at least one adware program on your computer and it generates such ads. What you may not know is that ad-supported programs may also be capable of hijacking authentic third-party ads to redirect you to malicious webpages. It is also possible to get infected with this fake alert if you click on links or ads on modified search results pages provided by a browser hijacker. You may click on a link and get redirected to a malicious site that could drop this infection onto your system. Yet another way for you to download bundles is when you land on questionable torrent, shareware, and gaming websites. These pages normally host several third-party ads. One click on the wrong content and you can infect your system with a “nice” package. As you can see, you cannot solve your infection issue if you delete Microsoft Security essentials +1-888-496-5150 alone; you also need to detect all other threats and eliminate them all, too.

Once this fake alert is activated, it locks your screen with its blue fake error screen that pretends to be some sort of remote support as a logo tries to confirm this too, apart from the title of this window. This screen obviously tries to imitate the good old BSOD or blue screen of death that most users fear to ever see. Even though we know that all the information on this error screen is fake and made-up, it may not be that obvious for inexperienced computer users. After some time a pop-up window also appears that is labeled as “Microsoft Security Essentials” and it shows you an allegedly “toll-free” telephone number to call (+1-888-496-5150). This pop-up tells you that a possible threat was detected, it even shows you a fake file name. You are given two buttons to choose from: Allow and Block. However, none of them actually function. Obviously, the purpose behind all this is to convince you to call this number. Be warned that by calling this telephone number you may risk being scammed. Although these schemers may make you believe that you will talk to a Microsoft certified technician, unfortunately, the sad truth is that a salesperson will be on the other end of the line trying to sell you an unnecessary product or service to fix your system. If you do not want to lose a couple of hundred dollars, we advise you to remove Microsoft Security essentials +1-888-496-5150 ASAP.
