How does it behave

You likely recently installed a free software, and through it you got the advertising-supported program. If the program has something attached, you won’t see it if you pick Default settings. We recommend choosing Advanced or Custom settings as otherwise, the added items won’t become visible. 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 harm, if you weren’t properly informed about their installation, they should not be permitted to install. It’s important that you pay attention when installing programs because otherwise, you will have to erase You Have Won Microsoft Gift Today or similar constantly.

All of these types of alerts are the same, they all want users to believe that their PC has ran into a problem. It can be warning you about a virus, system error, licensing issues, etc, scammers will use all kinds of situations. The alert will commonly also include some type of warning about leaked or lost data because this pressures less experienced users. Users would then be recommended to call tech-support using the given number, where they would be deceived. No trustworthy company will ever ask you to call them, so keep that in mind. So if supposedly Microsoft or Apple is asking you to call them via some adverts, know that it isn’t legitimate. The con artists would remotely connect to your system, pretend to find some issue, very quickly explain it to you and provide a way to solve everything, for which you would have to pay a lot of money. Tech-support scams are quite obvious but because less-computer knowledgeable users have not happened upon them before, they could become victims. And it’s not hard to see how some less computer knowledgeable people could fall for them, as even if they ignore the first pop-up, after they start popping up over and over again, they may think that it has some truth to it. If you do not believe us when we say legitimate companies would never alert you about a malevolent software through browser, you can always investigate the number supplied in the alert or the pop-up itself. Chances are, the very first result will prove that it’s a scam. So do not pay any attention to the warnings while you deal with the problem. If advertising-supported software  is to blame for them, you will need to locate and terminate You Have Won Microsoft Gift Today adware to make them go away.
