About Windows Support Alert

The reason Windows Support Alert adverts are showing up is because an adware has infected your OS. These scam advertisements will attempt to to make you call con artists pretending to be technical support so that they could sell you useless software or get access to your system remotely. If an ad-supported program is behind these adverts, they will be very intrusive, appear over and over again, no matter how many times you close them. An ad-supported program is generally installed during the free application set up process. No need to worry about the adverts somehow endangering your PC, and as long as you do not call the alleged tech support, you’ll be fine. If you did call them, you would be put through to professional con artists who would request permission to remotely connect to your device, do some weird fix, and then charge money, essentially for nothing. Keep in mind that before you permit anyone to have remote access to your machine, you must ensure they are trustworthy. And if you’re still worried about the ad you are getting, it’s not real, and your device is secure. When you remove Windows Support Alert, the adverts should go away, and you will be able to go back to regular browsing.

Why are the alerts appearing

An adware could generally be seen together with freeware as a bundled offer. If the application has something added, you will not see it if you pick Default mode. Advanced or Custom settings are the settings you should choose instead. If any offers become visible in Advanced, just deselect them, and they will not be allowed to install. And if you feel they could be of use, remember that they didn’t intend to correctly reveal their installation, and you would have installed them unknowingly. It is important that you pay attention to how you install programs and where you get them from because otherwise, you will have to uninstall Windows Support Alert or similar constantly.

The false advertisements want to trick users into believing that their machine has came across some type of problem. You’re probably seeing a supposed malware, licensing or system problems, because con artists are not very creative when it comes to schemes, and they’re all essentially the same. It is also not uncommon for the alert to include warnings about data loss or leaks because users will panic and would be more likely to believe the scam. In order to prevent those data loss scenarios, the user is asked to call their tech-support, who are pretending to be real to scam you. Legitimate companies will never ask you to call them, so keep that in mind. So if you see such ads, claiming to come from Apple or Microsoft, know that it isn’t real. If you did call the number, con artists would attempt to convince you that a cleanup is a must, while in reality nothing is wrong with your computer. The reason these tech-support scams still exist is because less-computer savvy people still fall for them. It is not hard to imagine why some users would fall for these scams because if they are popping up on a regular basis, they may see more legitimate. If you don’t believe us when we state legitimate companies would not use browser alerts to warn you about malicious programs, you could always look into the provided number. The first couple of results will definitely lead to sites that report it as a scam. So you may just safely ignore the pop-ups while you get rid of what’s causing them. If the warnings are frequent, you will have to eliminate Windows Support Alert advertising-supported software to make them stop.
