The pop-ups hosted on may appear in the user's Web browser because of a corrupted extension or more severe threats that were installed on the user's computer recently. The appearance of '' pop-ups may render the Web browser useless because these pop-ups may cover up the entire browser window and prevent users from clicking anything unless they somehow manage to close the pop-ups. However, closing '' pop-ups sound easier than it is – these pop-ups are very persistent, and they will not stop appearing unless the software which causes them is removed. pop-ups may seem legitimate because they copy the interface features and error messages used by popular anti-malware software, and that's why many users may be tricked by the trustworthy appearance of these pop-ups. If the pop-ups succeed and convince a user to call 844-413-7017, they may get in touch with fraudsters who'll attempt to convince them to pay for expensive technical support services or software.

It goes without saying that technical support tactics like the one associated with 844-413-7017 and '' pop-ups are exceptionally threatening because they may lead to loss of money, files and information easily. The best way to solve the issues caused by '' pop-ups is to run a full system scan with a reliable anti-malware application that can identify and remove the source of the problems.
