What does it do

You probably got the infection through free program packages. It comes adjoined as an optional offer which Default settings do not show, and if you do not see it, you can not unmark it, which will allow it to install. We advise you always pick Advanced (Custom) settings because otherwise, you won’t be able to uncheck the offers. Advanced will make the items visible, and all you have to do is deselect the boxes. We recommend that you always uncheck everything because if you weren’t correctly informed about their installation, they do not belong on your computer. If you wish to avoid having to eliminate Internet Explorer Critical ERROR and similar regularly, pay closer attention to how you install software.

The bogus pop-ups want to trick users into believing that there is something wrong with their PC. Scammers warn you about a variety of different of issues, such as malware, licensing or system issues. Don’t be shocked to see alerts about information being stolen because scare tactics work with less computer savvy users. The alert will state that if you wish to resolve the indicated problems and prevent data from leaking, you need to dial their tech-support, who are actually con artists. Trustworthy companies will never ask you to call them, so remember that. So if supposedly Microsoft or Apple is asking you to call them through some advertisements, know that it’s a scam. The scammers would remotely connect to your computer, pretend to find some problem, very quickly explain it to you and give a way to solve everything, for which of course, you would be charged. While to more computer experienced users tech-support scams can seem quite transparent, less computer savvy people may believe them, which is why those scams are still around. And it’s not hard to see how some less computer savvy people may believe the claims, because even if they ignore the first warning, after they start popping up regularly, they may believe that it’s a legitimate alert. If you don’t believe us when we say real companies would never warn you about malware via browser, you could always search the number given in the alert or the warning itself. Probably, the very first result will confirm that it’s a scam. Now that it’s been confirmed to be a scam, you can ignore the warning without worrying about some type of malevolent software on your computer, and can deal with the actual issue. There is nothing to worry about if it only appeared once or twice, but if you get them all the time, you will have to eliminate Internet Explorer Critical ERROR adware.
