Why are the warnings appearing

It’s quite probable that you got the threat through free application bundles. If the software comes with extra items, and you choose Default settings, you won’t see it. Only Advanced (Custom) settings will authorize you to deselect something so picking those settings is suggested. Advanced will make the items visible, and you just need to uncheck them.

The fake adverts intend to deceive people into thinking that there is something wrong with their computer. Con artists warn you about a variety of different of problems, such as malware, licensing or system issues. Expect to see alerts about data being stolen as scare tactics work with less computer savvy people. Users would then be suggested to call tech-support using the given number, where they would be scammed. Real companies will not request you to call them, and especially not through some random advert, so next time you come across similar pop-ups, remember that. So if you get an alert from Apple, Microsoft, or some other technology company, and are required to call them, you’re being tricked. Scammers on the other side of the line would claim that they must clean your computer, and that would cost you a large amount of money. Tech-support scams are not dangerous to regular computer users because they do not even resemble legitimate alerts but less computer experienced users may fall for them because they haven’t come across one before. And we can see how some less computer knowledgeable people may believe the allegations, because even if they don’t believe the first pop-up, after they start popping up regularly, they may think that it’s a trustworthy alert. If you aren’t convinced real companies would never warn you about a malevolent program via browser, you could always look into the given number. Chances are, the very first result will inform you that it is a scam. So don’t be afraid of ignoring the warnings while you deal with the problem. There is nothing to worry about if it only appeared once or twice, but if you get them all the time, you will have to delete Error DT00X2 POP-UP Scam adware.
