Why are the warnings appearing

Since adware installation seldom occurs knowingly, it frequently spreads through free software. It comes attached as an optional offer which Default settings do not show, and you can not unmark it if you can not see it, which will permit it to install. We encourage picking Advanced or Custom mode since otherwise, the attached items will not become visible. If extra items are present, they will become visible there, and all you have to do is unmark them. And while those items might not necessarily be dangerous, if they didn’t disclose their installation properly, they should not be allowed to install. If you want to avoid having to erase Congratulations User! and similar over and over again, be more attentive about how you install programs.

Whatever warning you are seeing on your screen, we can assure that it is saying that your machine has encountered a problem and needs immediate attention. You’re likely seeing a alleged malware, licensing or computer issues, because scammers are not very original when it comes to scenarios, and they’re all basically the same. The alert will also warn you about leaked or stolen data because these types of tactics are effective with less computer savvy people. A phone number would also be flashing somewhere, which would supposedly lead you to tech-support. When you come across these kinds of pop-ups, it is important to keep in mind that real software or security companies will not ask you to contact them using some random phone number. So if you get an advert from Apple, Microsoft, or some other technology company, and are asked to call them, you are being tricked. The scammers would ask you to give remote access to your computer, they would then charge you a lot of money for fixing  a non-existent problem. The reason these tech-support scams are still around is because less-computer savvy users still fall for them. It is not difficult to imagine why some people may fall for these scams because if they’re constantly popping up, they may look somewhat legitimate. If you’re still in doubt, use a trustworthy search engine to investigate it. Most results will include comments from users advising to be careful of these scammers. Now that you’re certain it is a scam, you may ignore the warning without worrying about some kind of malevolent software on your OS, and can deal with the actual problem. If adware  is responsible for them, you will have to find and eliminate Congratulations User! adware to make them stop.
