How to remove Call Microsoft Support

About this infection

The reason Call Microsoft Support alerts are showing up is because an adware has infected your machine. This is a typical tech-support scam that uses scare tactics to make users call certain numbers where they would be fooled into providing remote access to their OS. Ad-supported applications will make highly intrusive advertisements so expect the advertisements to regularly interrupt your browsing. An adware may usually be installed accidentally, during free applications installation. The adverts are harmless, and as long as you do not fall for the scam, you will be alright. The reason calling them is not a good idea is because you would be fooled out of a lot of money, or they would set up some type of malware. Not only should you never call the numbers in these dubious adverts, you should also never permit access to your OS to dubious parties. And if you’re still concerned about the alert you are getting, it is false, and your system is secure. In order to make the ads go away, all you need to do is uninstall  Call Microsoft Support.

How does it behave

Since adware installation seldom occurs knowingly, it usually spreads via freeware. If the application has something adjoined, choosing Default settings would be a mistake because the items would not appear. We encourage choosing Advanced or Custom settings because otherwise, you won’t be able to uncheck the items. Those settings will display all offers, and all you need to do is uncheck them. We recommend that you always uncheck everything because if you weren’t correctly informed about their installation, they don’t belong on your computer. If you want to avoid having to uninstall Call Microsoft Support and similar over and over again, pay closer attention to how you install software.

All of these kinds of warnings are identical, they all want to fool users into thinking that their OS has ran into a problem. It could be cautioning you about a virus, system error, licensing issues, etc, con artists will use all kinds of situations. These kinds of alerts will also attempt to scare you with warnings about data breaches and stolen data because these types of ploys are effective with inexperienced people. Users would then be advised to dial the provided number, which would allegedly connect them to technical support. Real companies will never ask you to call them, and especially not via some random advert, so keep that in mind the next time you come across similar warnings. So if you see such adverts, claiming to come from Apple or Microsoft, know that it isn’t real. The scammers would try to fix a non-existent issue on your machine, for which you would be charged a lot of money. Quite a few people fall for these scams because they could be quite elaborate, which is why tech-support scams are still around. And we can see how some less computer knowledgeable users may fall for them, because even if they do not fall for the first attempt, after they start showing up routinely, they may believe that it’s a legitimate alert. However, even if the alert looks fully legitimate, you ought to still investigate using a reliable search engine. We are 100% sure that the first results will be of people complaining about being tricked.
