Why are the alerts popping up

The frequent way to get an advertising-supported application is via freeware bundles. If the software has something added to it, you should deselect it, and Default settings will not allow you to do that. Only in Advanced (Custom) settings will you be able to deselect everything so picking those settings is advised. If added items are present, they will become visible there, and if you don’t want them, just uncheck them. We advise that you always unmark everything because if you weren’t properly informed about their installation, they do not belong on your system. Pay close attention to what type of applications are allowed to install onto the computer, and how you do it, unless you want to constantly be stuck having to erase You Have Won A Google Gift or similar.

These types of false alerts want to deceive users into believing that their PC has came across some type of problem. Scammers warn you about a variety of different of issues, such as malware, licensing or computer problems. It is also not uncommon for the alert to include warnings about data loss or leaks because this scares users into reacting. A phone number would be flashing somewhere, the warning asking you to dial it, and if you did, you would be connected to skilled scammers. Keep in mind that no real software or security business will ever ask users to call them. For example, if Apple or Microsoft is asking you to call them, you are obviously being con artists. If you did call the number, scammers would try to trick you into thinking that that a pricey clean up would be needed, while in reality there is nothing wrong with your computer. Quite a few users fall for these scams because they may be less experienced when it comes to computers, which is why tech-support scams are still around. And we can see how some less computer knowledgeable users could fall for them, because even if they don’t fall for the first attempt, after they start popping up regularly, they might think that something is actually wrong. If you’re still in doubt, use a reliable search engine to look into it. The first couple of results will surely lead to pages that report it as a scam. So don’t be afraid of ignoring the alerts while you get rid of what’s causing them. There is nothing to worry about if you’ve ran into it once, but if you frequently get them, you will have to remove You Have Won A Google Gift adware.
