What does it do

It’s very probable that you acquired the threat through freeware bundles. It is attached as an optional offer which Default mode don’t show, and if you don’t see it, you can’t deselect it, which is basically like providing the attached items the authorization to install. We encourage you always pick Advanced (Custom) settings since otherwise, the added offers won’t become visible. The added offers will be made visible, and if you do not want them, just uncheck them. It would be a good idea to always unmark everything because if you weren’t properly informed about their installation, they don’t belong on your operating system.

The false warnings intend to trick users into believing that their OS has encountered some type of problem. You are possibly seeing a alleged malware, licensing or computer problems, because scammers aren’t very creative when it comes to schemes, and they’re all essentially identical. Expect to see warnings about data being stolen as less computer savvy people would be more likely to fall for this scam. Users would then be encouraged to call tech-support using the supplied number, where they would be scammed. If you ever come across very authentic advertisements, keep in mind that trustworthy software or security companies will not ask you to contact them using some random phone number. So if you get an ad from Apple, Microsoft, or some other technology company, and are required to call them, you are being tricked. The con artists would ask to access your device remotely, they would then try to repair issues that don’t actually exist and charge 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. Even if you don’t pay attention to the first pop-up, it would appear over and over again later on, so it isn’t hard to imagine why people fall for these scams. However, even if the alert appears completely real, you ought to still investigate using a trustworthy search engine. Probably, the very first result will inform you that it’s a scam. So you could just safely ignore the pop-ups while you get rid of what’s causing them.
