What is Immediate-support.com?
Immediate-support.com is a malicious webpage and a fake alert that may appear on your computer screen. What is important for you to know is that you should not follow any of the instructions that are presented in it. Do not download any supposedly useful software or call the fake tech support number that may also appear on your screen. These messages are nothing but tricks used to scare people into thinking that there are serious issues with their PC. If you download the proposed program you may be acquiring malware instead.
Whereas if you call the so-called tech support you will be provided with false information about your PC and will have to pay the cyber criminals for nothing. Not to mention the amount that you will have to pay on your phone bill. If you have already downloaded something from this site or keep seeing this pop-up message you should run a system scan as soon as possible and delete Immediate-support.com and the related software.
Why do I see Immediate-support.com?
The reason you get redirected to Immediate-support.com or see this pop-up when you open your browsers may be because there is a potentially unwanted application on your computer. If you have recently downloaded freeware or shareware and did not pay much attention to the installation process it is possible that you allowed additional programs to get installed as well. Next time be sure to download software from reliable sources or at least check all information provided in EULA. You should also choose Advanced Installation whenever you can in order to avoid similar situations. If you do not remember downloading any freeware onto your PC it could be that your computer got infected in a different way. You could have downloaded a corrupted e-mail attachment or clicked on a malicious link. In any case you should scan your computer with an anti-malware scanner that will help you determine what application you need to delete in order to get rid of Immediate-support.com.
