hi @baladox ,

its scam dont even click on it !!!

"Your computer is infected" fake anti-virus pop-up alert scams

You may be one of the numerous people who have received similar pop-up alerts. They commonly appear after you open an email attachment, download files, visit websites programmed to download malicious software or click on a pop-up advertisement.

SCAMwatch warns consumers to be wary of fake anti-virus alerts. NEVER click on pop-up anti-virus alerts.

Scammers often use the names of well-known companies that specialise in computer software to gain your trust. The pop-up advertisements aim to mimic genuine warning alerts generated by computer security software.

The software or "free scan" offered in pop-up alerts often doesn't work or actually infects your computer with the dangerous programs it is supposed to protect against.

This scam aims to either charge you for bogus software and/or obtain your personal information. Once your computer is infected, the scammer commonly gathers personal information to steal your identity or to sell it to other criminals.

If you have an anti-virus, scan your computer and see If it detects anything, if you don't have an anti-virus, download avast free antivirus from www.Avast.com , scan your PC and see if it detects anything, if it doesn't, then it is fake, it is a scam, close the page and navigate to another page, if it keeps coming back, then your PC is infected with an adware, get an adware cleaner....

Hi @baladox

No ransome ware attacker will give his mobile number to call. He will give you his bitcoin account code to transfer money.

It is a malicious ads that contains trap of malware or virus. I will recommended you to use avast browser plugin that blocks such black listed website.

You may also use add blocker for protection from such ads.

It is a scam, it is fake, it is malware, don´t call that (incomplete) number. Don´t click accept at anything from that window.

You should do this, it is important in this particular order:
1. Run Wise Disk Cleaner.
2. Run Wise Registry Cleaner.
3. Run an Antimalware tool.
4. Run an Antivirus tool.

This steps should remove virtually any attack from the world wide web

It is highly recommended:
Antimalware tool: Spybot Anti-malware
Antivirus tool: Avast

I hope this information will help you...

Do NOT CLICK ON IT. It is itself a virus. if you have an anti-virus program run it. If it doesn't detect it, it's not on their definition list. contact customer support for steps you should take to remove it. If you don't you could download Avast or AVG , free of charge for the slimmed down version. These and many more useful utility programs are available at CNET.com I have had very "good luck" with them.
