The InstantSupport adware might be dispersed among PC users via freeware bundles that most users may install with the 'Typical' or 'Express' option. The InstantSupport adware-powered browser widget is designed to offer users to call 'Microsoft© trained technicians' at the 888-693-5841 phone number and resolve PC issues.
