About this infection

“Your system is heavily damaged by (4) virus!” are bogus alerts attempting to convince you that there is a problem with your device. You should never trust these kinds of alerts, everything they state is false, unless the issue is completely unconnected. If an ad-supported software is behind these adverts, they will be incredibly intrusive, appear over and over again, no matter how many times you close them. An ad-supported program generally installs during the free software installation. In case you’re worried, the warnings are quite harmless by themselves, and if you do not dial the number, no damage will be done. The scammers on the other side of the phone would ask you to give remote access to your machine, and then try to make you believe that they have fixed the problem (which does not even exist in the first place), for which they would charge you a lot of money. Bear in mind that before you permit anyone to have remote access to your machine, you should check them and ensure they are who they say they are. You can be calm that this contamination the advert is warning you about it’s not real, and that your computer is safe. When you uninstall “Your system is heavily damaged by (4) virus!”, the adverts should disappear, and you will be able to go back to regular browsing.

How does it behave

You probably obtained the infection through freeware bundles. If the application comes with additional offers, and you pick Default mode, you will not see it. Instead of Default, pick Advanced (Custom) settings. Those settings will make all extra items visible, and all you have to do is deselect them. And while those items might not necessarily bring about danger, if you weren’t properly informed about their installation, they should not be permitted to install. If you wish to have to remove “Your system is heavily damaged by (4) virus!” or similar for the last time, start paying attention to what you install onto your device.

All of these kinds of warnings are the same, they all want people to believe that their OS is encountering some kind of issues. You’re probably seeing a alleged malevolent software, licensing or computer issues, because con artists aren’t very original when it comes to schemes, and they’re all basically the same. Do not be shocked to see warnings about data loss or leaks since less computer savvy people would be more likely to fall for this scam. The advert would also be asking you to call the provided number, and if you did, you would be connected to professional con artists. Take into consideration that no legitimate software or security business will ever ask users to call them. For example, if Apple or Microsoft is asking you to call them, it’s most definitely a scam. The scammers would try to solve a non-existent problem on your computer, for which of course, you would be charged. The reason these tech-support scams are still around is because less-computer savvy people still fall for them. And it isn’t hard to see how some less computer savvy users may fall for them, because even if they ignore the first alert, after they start appearing over and over again, they may believe that something is actually wrong. If you aren’t convinced legitimate companies would never warn you about malware via browser, you can always check out the number supplied in the warning or the alert itself. The first results will surely lead to sites that report it as a scam. So don’t be scared of closing the warning and entirely ignoring it while you get rid of what’s causing them. There’s nothing to worry about if it only appeared once or twice, but if you frequently get them, you will have to remove “Your system is heavily damaged by (4) virus!” advertising-supported program.
