Windows users that experience 'Windows Virus Warning' pop-ups by and do not understand the inner mechanics of their OS may be lead to call 844-416-7294. PC users need to know that the domain is not safe and is associated with adware that promotes bogus computer assistance. The content of the pop-ups are not generated by your OS and is not reliable. Regardless of the messages displayed on the pop-up windows the domain is not associated with Microsoft that provide support only to companies and governmental institutions according to certain protocols. The pop-ups may use an animated screenshot of detected threats to claim credibility. Also, the pop-ups may incorporate JavaScript to prevent users from closing the messages on immediately and simulate an abnormal behavior of your browser. As stated above, the bogus computer assistants at 844-416-7294 aim to convince users that they are infected with threats like Snowal and Virut. The adware linked to is not a severe threat that can harm your file system and OS settings but can change your browser's homepage and new tab settings. You may have installed the adware by using the 'Express' or 'Typical' option of a free software bundle. Adware applications often take the form of browser plug-ins to manipulate the behavior of Web browsers and may load from the Temp folder to evade security scans. The adware can be addressed with a credible anti-malware tool that can upgrade your cyber defenses.
