Are you seeing random “Call Toll Free Support 1-800” pop-up and asking you to call a 1-800 phone number to fix your PC? Then your computer is infected with an adware or a potentially unwanted program.
Whenever you open Internet Explorer, Firefox or Google Chrome, an ad from 1-800 will pop-up. This is a malicious website which is used by cyber criminals to promote their remote support as “Microsoft Certified Professionals” saying that your computer is infected and that you need to call them to remove the infection. This is a bogus claim, and an attempt to make you pay an insane amount of money for their “services”.Even sometimes they will encrypt your data and make you do monthly payments in order to give you access to your own information!
DON’T MAKE THE CALL!!!
If you DON’T call them and follow their instructions they CAN’T have access to your computer. But unfortunately the annoying pop-up will keep bothering you.
HOW TO STOP THIS???
Your computer needs a full Virus and Malware clean up. Also for extra protection we recommend to block the pop-up in your browser.
