About this threat

The reason you are seeing Online Surveys Center virus alerts is because of an ad-supported application infection. This is a classic tech-support scam that attempts to frighten users into calling certain numbers where they would be asked to give remote access to their computer. Ad-supported software will generate very invasive adverts so expect the ads to pop up regularly. An ad-supported software may usually be installed by accident, during free programs installation. In case you are worried, the ads are quite harmless by themselves, and if you don’t call the scammers, no damage will be done. However, if you did call them, scammers will attempt to fool you into paying a lot of money for a service you have no need for, or more serious malevolent software might be installed, and that may authorize them access to your private details. Bear in mind that you should never grant remote access to your PC to unfamiliar people, especially when their advertisement appears in your browser. And if you are still worried about the alert you are getting, it is bogus, and your PC is safe. The warnings will only stop popping if you delete Online Surveys Center virus, so you should get to that as quickly as possible.

What does it do

Since adware installation seldom happens knowingly, it frequently is distributed through free applications. These types of infections commonly come together with freeware as extra items, and while they are optional, a lot of people end up installing them because they do not notice them. We advise opting for Advanced (Custom) mode because otherwise, you will not be able to deselect the offers. If Advanced settings expose something, make sure everything is deselected. And if you feel they might be useful, take into consideration that they didn’t intend to correctly reveal their installation, and you would have accidentally installed them. If you wish to avoid having to uninstall Online Surveys Center virus and similar constantly, pay closer attention to how you install applications.

Most tech-support scams are identical, they all want to trick users into believing that their operating system is encountering some kind of problems. Scammers warn you about a variety of different of issues, such as damaging programs, licensing or computer issues. Since scare tactics are especially effective with less-computer savvy users, the advertisement will possibly also include warnings about possible data loss or leak. The alert would also be requiring you to call the number provided, and if you did, you would be connected to trained scammers. One thing to remember is that legitimate software or security company will never ask users to call them. For example, if Apple or Microsoft is requesting you to call them, it’s obviously a scam. These scammers would try to convince you that there is something severely wrong with your system, and while they could resolve it, it would cost money. Tech-support scams aren’t very convincing but because less-computer savvy people have not encountered them before, they might become victims. It isn’t hard to imagine why somebody may fall for these scams because if they are frequently popping up, they may look somewhat legitimate. If our reassurances about these ads being scams are not enough, you could easily make sure by using a search engine to investigate. The first results will certainly confirm it is a scam. Now that you’re sure it is a scam, just close the warnings and deal with what is bringing them about.
