How to delete Bankworm Virus

About this threat

Bankworm Virus is brought about by an adware which was probably by accident installed onto the OS. The main intention of these bogus adverts is to deceive users into dialing supposed tech-support who would first ask for remote access to your computer, and then install overpriced, possibly useless software. If an adware is indeed to blame, expect advertisements to be quite intrusive. You could have encountered the advertising-supported application infection if you didn’t pay attention during free application installation. Just to be clear, the advertisements will not harm your OS so as long as you don’t dial the number, no damage will be done. If you did call them, you would have to deal with competent scammers who would imitate fixing your operating system, and then request an absurd amount of money. Not only should you never call the numbers in these dubious ads, you should think twice before you authorize some weird tech-support to gain remote access to your OS. And if you are still worried about the advertisement you are getting, it is false, and your operating system is secure. When you terminate Bankworm Virus, the advertisements should disappear, and you will be able to go back to normal browsing.

How does it behave

An advertising-supported software is frequently adjoined to free software as an additional item. If the software has something added, picking Default settings would be a mistake because the offers won’t be visible. So as to be able to unmark the offers, choose Advanced (Custom) mode. Advanced will show you the items, and you just need to unmark them. And while those items might not necessarily be harmful, if you were not properly informed about their installation, they do not belong on your PC. It’s important that you pay attention when installing applications because otherwise, you will have to terminate Bankworm Virus or similar over and over again.

Most tech-support scams are the same, they all want to trick users into believing that their OS has encountered an issue. You’re likely seeing a alleged malware, licensing or system issues, because scammers are not very original when it comes to scenarios, and they are all essentially the same. Expect to see alerts about information being stolen since scare tactics work with less computer savvy users. The pop-up would also be requiring you to call the number provided, and if you did, you would be connected to professional scammers. Legitimate companies won’t request you to call them, and especially not through some random ad, so next time you come across similar alerts, remember that. So if you see such ads, claiming to come from Apple or Microsoft, know that it’s not legitimate. The scammers would remotely connect to your device, pretend to find some problem, very quickly explain it to you and give a way to solve everything, for which of course, you would be charged. Tech-support scams are quite transparent but because less-computer knowledgeable users haven’t happened upon them before, they could become victims. And it isn’t hard to see how some less computer knowledgeable users may believe the claims, because even if they do not fall for the first attempt, after they start showing up over and over again, they may believe that something is genuinely wrong. If us saying it’s a scam not enough, you can easily find out by using a search engine to investigate. Likely, the first few results will confirm that it’s a scam. So do not be scared of closing the warning and entirely ignoring it while you deal with the issue. If the alerts are appearing frequently, you will have to find and terminate Bankworm Virus advertising-supported software.
