0800-014-8604 Pop-Up is a newcomer on the front of technical support scams and “proudly” follows its predecessors, including “+1-800-236-1513,” “Microsoft Security essentials +1-888-496-5150,” and “License has Expired +1-888-303-5121.” This is indeed a fake alert message that can pop up in your browser if you get redirected to a certain malicious webpage set up by cyber criminals. This page may look like an authentic Microsoft security center to the untrained eye, but you should know that this is a total scam aimed at your wallet. Although we have found that currently this malicious site may not be working, the server it is hosted on gives home to a number of other similar threats, too. In any case, should you encounter this fake alert, do not fall for it and do not call the emergency phone number given to you. In fact, you should remove 0800-014-8604 Pop-Up and all possibly related and harmful applications as well.
This malware infection may show up in your browser after you click on the wrong web content, such as a corrupt link, a banner, or pop-up ad, but it is also quite likely that your computer is infected with adware that can redirect you to this malicious page (continuescanx.xyz). If you do not want to end up being scammed by 0800-014-8604 Pop-Up, you should avoid suspicious websites, including torrent, shareware, porn, and gaming pages. These are packed with unsafe third-party contents, such as fake buttons, fake notification, and so on. Clicking on these can easily redirect you to this malicious page or drop a package of malware infections onto your system. In other words, seeing this fake alert on your screen could also indicate the presence of other, potentially more dangerous malware threats, such as adware programs, browser hijackers, Trojans, backdoors, and potentially unwanted programs. This is why you should not hesitate to use a reliable online malware scanner after you delete 0800-014-8604 Pop-Up from your system.
As we have already mentioned, it is also possible that your computer is infected with adware, which would mean that you are never really safe while surfing the net. This infection may spy on you as well as hijack legitimate third-party ads. An ad-supported program may show you a flow of annoying ads that can take you to malicious sites like this one or drop a bundle of threats onto your machine. No wonder why we keep emphasizing how vital it is for you to make sure at all times that your system is completely clean and secure. Do not think for a second that it will be enough for you to delete 0800-014-8604 Pop-Up alone. Once you use a proper security tool to scan your computer, you will see what you are up against.
Our research shows that this malicious website could be down for the time being. In any case, it is important that we talk about it and share what might hit you even if in a bit different form or name in the future. When you get hit by this fake alert, you suddenly get redirected to this page that resembles an authentic Microsoft security center and a pop-up window appears informing you that your computer has been blocked due to a supposed infection and “suspicious activity” on your system. You are warned not to close this page but, instead, you should call 0800-014-8604 immediately to sort out this “critical” issue. This is how a lot of users are easily deceived since they just would not know better.
You should know that calling this number would not give you a real and authentic Microsoft technician. Instead, you would talk to a sales person trying to sell you some useless system fixing tool or service. This may cost you up to a few hundred dollars if you are gullible enough to believe that there is a critical problem with your computer and nothing else can help. Fortunately for you, we are here to give you another option: With our help you can remove 0800-014-8604 Pop-Up from your computer. So let us tell you how.
While it is possible that your fake alert infection was not due to a previous malware infection and you were simply redirected from another malicious website, our experience shows that there could be a number malware threats on your system anyway. Although we cannot tell you a specific adware program that could be responsible for this malicious redirection, we suggest that you scan your list of installed programs in Control Panel for any suspicious application you may find. Once you uninstall what should not be there in the first place, you could also remove all questionable browser extensions by resetting your main browsers. Please use our instructions below if you need assistance with these steps. However, it is still possible that even after going through all this cleaning spree, more covert threats might remain hidden on your system. Therefore, we recommend that you use a trustworthy malware removal tool, such as SpyHunter to automatically protect your PC from all possible malware infections.
