About this infection

The reason Congratulations User! alerts are showing up is because an adware has infected your OS. It is a scam that will most likely try to to make you call Tech support so that scammers can gain remote access to your PC and set up not wanted, overpriced applications. Advertising-supported software will generate very invasive ads so expect the warnings to regularly interrupt your browsing. If you carelessly install freeware, it isn’t surprising you picked up an adware. The adverts aren’t going to endanger your PC, as long as you do not fall for the scam. If you did call them, you would have to deal with people who scam others for a living, and they would request permission to remotely connect to your machine, do some weird fix, and then charge money, basically for nothing. Authorizing some questionable tech-support remote access to your computer can turn out badly, so you should be careful. And when it comes to this ad, don’t pay any attention to it, it is not real. The advertisements will only stop appearing if you terminate Congratulations User!, so you ought to get to that as quickly as possible.

Are the warnings real

You must have recently installed a freeware, and via it you obtained the adware. If the application has something added to it, you should deselect it, and Default settings will not allow you to do that. Only Advanced or Custom mode will permit you to deselect something so we advise picking those settings. If Advanced settings reveal something, ensure everything is deselected. And while those items might not necessarily cause danger, if they didn’t inform you about their installation properly, they should not be permitted to install. Pay close attention to what type of applications are permitted to install onto the operating system, and how you do it, unless you wish to regularly be stuck having to delete Congratulations User! or similar.

We can guarantee that whatever tech-support scam warning you see on your screen, it is saying that there is a serious problem on your PC. Scammers warn you about a variety of different of problems, such as malicious software, licensing or computer issues. These types of alerts will also caution you about leaked or lost data because these kinds of ploys are effective with inexperienced people. The alert will allege that so as to resolve the mentioned problems and stop data from leaking, you need to dial the given number, where scammers would tinker with your OS and charge you loads of money for it. Legitimate companies will never ask you to call them, so keep that in mind. For example, if Apple or Microsoft is asking you to call them, you’re most definitely being scammed. These scammers would try to convince you that there is a lot wrong with your system, and that they’re the only ones who can solve the problem, which of course, would cost you a lot. A somewhat big number of people fall for these scams since they might be less experienced when it comes to computers, which is why tech-support scams still exist. It isn’t difficult to imagine why somebody may fall for these scams because if they are regularly appearing, they may see pretty legitimate. But you can easily make sure it’s a scam by using a search engine to look into it. The first results will certainly confirm it’s a scam. So you may just safely ignore the alerts while you get rid of what’s causing them. If the pop-ups are frequently appearing on your screen, you will have to find and delete Congratulations User! advertising-supported software.
