Why are the warnings popping up

An advertising-supported program is normally attached to free applications because no one would install it otherwise. If the program comes together with additional offers, you won’t see it if you choose Default settings. So as to be able to unmark the offers, opt for Advanced or Custom settings. If Advanced settings reveal something, ensure you uncheck all the offers. And if you think they could be useful, remember that they didn’t intend to properly reveal their installation, and you would have installed them accidentally. If you want to avoid having to uninstall Do Not Ignore This Windows Alert and similar over and over again, pay attention to what you install onto your operating system, and how you do it.

The bogus warnings plan to trick people into believing that there is something wrong with their operating system. It could be some kind of virus, system error, licensing issues, etc, scammers will use all kinds of situations. Don’t be surprised to see alerts about information being stolen as less computer savvy users would be more likely to fall for this scam. The warning will allege that if you want to solve the mentioned problems and prevent data loss, you must dial the given number, where phony tech-support will do something to fix a non-existent issue and charge you loads of money for it. No legitimate company will ever ask you to call them, so remember that. For example, if Apple or Microsoft is asking you to call them, it’s most definitely a scam. These scammers would try to convince you that your system has a problem, and while they can resolve it, it would cost money. Tech-support scams are very obvious but because less-computer savvy people haven’t encountered them before, they might become victims. And it isn’t hard to see how some less computer savvy users could fall for them, as even if they don’t fall for the first attempt, after they start popping up routinely, they may believe that something is actually wrong. If you’re still in doubt, you can always use a search engine to investigate, and that would make everything clear. We can assure that the first results will be of users complaining about scammers. So you can just safely ignore the warnings while you get rid of what’s causing them.
