Danger level 6
Common infection symptoms:
  • Annoying Pop-up's

If you find yourself all of a sudden on a Microsoft Windows error page of some sort, do not panic because chances are just loaded in your browser. Whenever you land on a page that tells you that your system has been hacked or corrupted and this warning seems to come from an authentic source like Microsoft, you had better check the URL in the address bar and the spelling of the displayed messages because both of these can be a giveaway. This is indeed a fake alert page that is also called a technical support scam since it tries to force you to call a telephone number for support to fix an alleged system issue. This is all about tricking you into buying a piece of software or a service that supposedly fixes your claimed issues and keep your PC safe. However, none of this is true. If you do not want to be scammed and lose your money, we suggest that you do not hesitate to remove from your computer as soon as possible.

You may land on this fake alert site by clicking on a compromised link or a corrupt third-party advertisement. Surfing the web may not be as safe as you may think if your PC is not protected by an up-to-date anti-malware program. Even if your computer is not infected with any threats, which is not very likely to be frank, you may easily infect it while browsing and clicking on random ads. For example, you may be viewing a page that claims to be an online movie streamer site; however, when you click to watch a movie, the page will display a pop-up claiming that you need to install the latest Flash driver. But when you click to install, you suddenly get forwarded to this fake alert page and there you go. One click and you find yourself in this misleading situation. In this case, you may simply exit the browser to remove

What we believe is more likely is that there are malware infections hiding on your computer, one of which could be responsible for the appearance of this fake alert page in your browser. Unfortunately, we have not been able to identify one particular threat that may be responsible. It is possible that you infected your system by installing a free software bundle recently. You may have downloaded such a bundle by downloading a free program from a shady torrent or freeware page, or by clicking on an unreliable third-party advertisement on a suspicious webpage. But, then again, it is also possible that your computer was already infected and that is how you were exposed to such an ad. All in all, we strongly recommend that you use a trustworthy malware scanner to find all possible threats after you delete

This fake alert page may actually convince any inexperienced users or even more experienced ones as well that it is a legitimate Microsoft Windows support page. This page shows you pop-up messages as well claiming that your system has been corrupted and your product key file is not found. Thus, you are told to "immediately" call "001-800-630-3153" for technical support. The problem is that you may not even realize that you are not talking to a certified technician and you may share your personal details or even provide remote access to your computer. We hope that you understand the potential risks involved here. These schemers might use your details to commit online crimes in your name but may also attack your computer with more serious threats or simply steal sensitive information once access has been granted. We believe that your best move is to remove as soon as possible.

You can start eliminating this threat source by closing your browser. Then, you can reset your browsers to make sure that all possible browser-related infections and potential threats are gone. Please follow our guide below if you are not familiar with the necessary steps. Please remember that there could be several malicious or potentially harmful programs on board. It is possible that you also need to scan through your install programs list via Control Panel and uninstall all suspicious applications you have installed lately. If you need a more effective way to clean your PC and keep it safe from future attacks, we suggest that you employ a professional anti-malware program like SpyHunter.
