About this threat

Windows Warning Alert is a bogus warning claiming that your computer has malware or that there is a serious issue. You ought to never trust these types of warnings, nothing they state is true, unless the problem is completely unrelated. If these alerts are brought about by an ad-supported software, they will be pretty intrusive, show up over and over again, no matter how many times you close them. An advertising-supported application may commonly be installed by accident, when you install free applications. No need to worry about the pop-ups somehow harming your machine, and unless you dial the provided number, you will be fine. The reason calling them would be a mistake is because you would be fooled out of a lot of money, or they would install some type of damaging program. Keep in mind that you should not allow some questionable technicians to remotely access your system, particularly when their advertisement pop-ups in your browser. And if you’re still concerned about the advertisement you are getting, it’s false, and neither your computer nor your information is in jeopardy. If you want to prevent the invasive ads, all you need to do is eliminate Windows Warning Alert.

How does it behave

Since no one would knowingly install ad-supported programs, it is normally distributed through freeware. If the software has something added, and you choose Default settings, you won’t see it. Only Advanced or Custom mode will authorize you to unmark something so we recommend opting for those settings. If you notice any items trying to install, deselect them. And if you feel they could be useful, consider the fact that they didn’t intend to correctly disclose their installation, and you would have installed them unknowingly. If you wish to have to terminate Windows Warning Alert or similar for the last time, start paying attention to how you install software, and where you get them from.

Most tech-support scams are identical, they all want people to think that their system is encountering some kind of problems. Con artists warn you about a variety of different of problems, such as malware, licensing or computer issues. It’s also common for the alert to warn you about data loss or leaks because users who panic are more likely to fall for the scam. The alert would also be asking you to call the provided number, and if you did, you would be dealing with trained con artists. Real companies will not request you to call them, and especially not via some random advertisement, so next time you encounter similar warnings, remember that. For example, if Apple or Microsoft is requesting you to call them, it is certainly a scam attempt. Scammers on the other side of the line would declare that the issue has to be dealt with right away but that would cost you a large amount of money. The reason these tech-support scams still exist is because less-computer savvy people still fall for them. It is not difficult to imagine why some users would fall for these scams because if they are appearing regularly, they may look pretty real. If you’re still in doubt, use a dependable search engine to investigate it. Likely, the very first result will inform you that it’s a scam. Now that you’re certain it is a scam, you can close the alert without worrying about some kind of malware on your OS, and can deal with the actual problem. If it is adware that is causing them, you will have to find and erase Windows Warning Alert adware to make them go away.
