Adware

About this infection

Tecsupporter.com is a bogus alert falsely warning that your computer has been contaminated with damaging software or ran into a serious problem. This is a classic tech-support scam that attempts to intimidate users into calling certain numbers where they would be tricked into giving remote access to their PC. If an advertising-supported program is indeed to blame, expect advertisements to be highly intrusive. If you negligently install freeware, it isn’t shocking you encountered an adware. Just to be clear, the ads won’t harm your operating system so as long as you do not call the scammers, no harm will be done. The con artists on the other side of the phone would try very hard to trick you into providing remote access to your operating system, and then ensure that they have solved the problem (which does not even exist in the first place), for which you would be charged. Not only should you never call the numbers in these dubious ads, you should be careful about who you give remote access to your machine. And if you are still concerned about the advert you are getting, it is not real, and neither your machine nor your data is in jeopardy. And if you just remove Tecsupporter.com the advertising-supported software, the alerts should stop.

What does it do

The common way to get an advertising-supported application is via freeware bundles. If the software has something attached to it, you should deselect it, and Default settings won’t permit you to do that. Instead, pick Advanced or Custom mode. If any offers become visible in Advanced, just unmark them, and they will be stopped from installing. And while those items might not necessarily be harmful, if they didn’t disclose their installation properly, they don’t belong on your operating system. If you want to avoid having to erase Tecsupporter.com and similar constantly, pay attention to what you install onto your PC, and how you do it.

Most tech-support scams are identical, they all want people to believe that their machine has encountered a problem. Scammers will think of all kinds schemes, such as malevolent software, licensing or computer issues. It’s also common for the alert to warn you about data loss or leaks as users will panic and would be more likely to believe the scam. In order to stop those data loss scenarios, the user is asked to call con artists who are pretending to be tech-support. No trustworthy company will ever ask you to call them, so keep that in mind. So if you get an alert from Apple, Microsoft, or some other technology company, and are asked to call them, you’re being fooled. These scammers would attempt to convince you that there is something severely wrong with your computer, and that they’re the only ones who can resolve the issue, which of course, would cost you a lot. The reason these tech-support scams are still around is because less-computer savvy users still fall for them. And it isn’t hard to see how some less computer savvy users may believe the allegations, as even if they dismiss the first alert, after they start popping up regularly, they might believe that something is genuinely wrong. If you don’t believe us when we say legitimate companies would never warn you about malware through browser, you could always investigate the number given in the pop-up or the alert itself. Most results will contain comments from victims about being scammed. So don’t pay any attention to the alerts while you deal with the issue. If it is advertising-supported software that is causing them, you will need to find and terminate Tecsupporter.com advertising-supported software to make them stop.
