Delete Windows Support Alert

About Windows Support Alert

The reason Windows Support Alert warnings are appearing is because an adware has infected your operating system. These tech-support scams are just trying to fool you, everything they state is false, unless the issue is completely unrelated. If you’re dealing with adware , it would not be surprising if the pop-ups were highly invasive and popped up over and over again. An adware commonly installs during the free software set up process. No need to worry about the ads harming your OS, and as long as you do not call the supposed tech support, you will be fine. The scammers on the other side of the phone will try very hard to trick you into giving remote access to your PC, and then ensure that they have repaired the problem (which does not even exist in the first place), for which they would charge you a lot of money. You should never call the numbers in these questionable warnings, and you should be cautious about who you give remote access to your operating system. And if you’re still worried about the advertisement you are getting, it is bogus, and your device is safe. If you want to stop the intrusive adverts, all you need to do is erase Windows Support Alert.

How does it behave

An adware is usually found packaged with other programs. A lot of freeware have something added to them, and you won’t see them if you use Default mode during installation. In order to be able to uncheck the offers, opt for Advanced (Custom) settings. If you see any items trying to install, unmark them. And while those items might not necessarily bring about harm, if they did not inform you about their installation properly, they shouldn’t be allowed to install. Pay close attention to what you install onto the device, and how you do it, unless you want to regularly end up having to delete Windows Support Alert or similar.

These types of fake advertisements intend to fool people into thinking that their machine has ran into some type of issue. Scammers warn you about a variety of different of issues, such as malevolent programs, licensing or system problems. Since less-computer savvy people are more like to fall for scare tactics, it wouldn’t be shocking to see warnings about potential data breaches. The pop-up will allege that in order to solve the indicated issues and prevent data loss, you need to dial their tech-support, who are actually con artists. Trustworthy companies will not request you to call them, and especially not via some random advert, so remember that the next time you happen upon something similar. So if you get an alert from Apple, Microsoft, or some other technology company, and are required to call them, you’re being scammed. If you did call the number, scammers would declare that they have to clean your computer, and that would cost you a large amount of money. The reason these tech-support scams are still around is because less-computer knowledgeable people still fall for them.
