Why are the warnings popping up

An advertising-supported program is usually found bundled with freeware. If the application has something added, and you choose Default mode, you will not see it. We recommend choosing Advanced (Custom) mode because otherwise, you will not be able to deselect the items. If any offers become visible in Advanced, just deselect them, and they will be blocked from installing. And if you think they could be of use, remember that they didn’t intend to properly disclose their installation, and you would have unknowingly installed them. Pay close attention to what kind of programs are permitted to install onto the system, and how you do it, unless you wish to regularly be stuck having to uninstall Do Not Ignore This Windows Alert or similar.

The false alerts intend to deceive people into thinking that there is something wrong with their operating system. Scammers will think of all kinds schemes, such as malware, licensing or computer problems. The alert will usually also include some type of warning about data loss or leak of personal information because these kinds of tactics are effective with inexperienced people. According to the pop-up, if you want to resolve the mentioned problems and prevent data from leaking, you need to dial the provided number, where scammers would mess with your operating system and charge you a couple of hundred dollars for it. Take into consideration that real software or security company will never ask users to call them. For example, if Apple or Microsoft is asking you to call them, you are most definitely being con artists. Scammers on the other side of the line would try to fool you into thinking that that a cleanup is a must, while in reality nothing is wrong with your system. Quite a few people fall for these scams because they may be less experienced when it comes to computers, which is why tech-support scams still exist. Even if you dismiss the first pop-up, it would pop-up again and again later on, so it is not difficult to see why some people would fall for these scams. However, even if the warning appears completely legitimate, you need to still look into it using a dependable search engine. Most results will contain comments from victims about being tricked.
