'Safe PC Support Page' Pop-Ups can be very annoying but, at the same time, these misleading pages can also trick you into purchasing useless software or infecting your system with potentially unwanted programs. As a matter of fact, we have classified these pop-ups as fake alerts because, obviously, these are only based on false information to scam you. If you keep seeing these pages popping up, it is quite likely that your system has been infected with malware. In other words, you will never be entirely safe again while surfing the web unless you remove 'Safe PC Support Page' Pop-Ups and possibly related infections from your PC. It is important that you read our full article so that you understand more how such malware infections can appear on your system even without your knowledge.
Being presented with these fake alerts can happen only if you are redirected to certain malicious webpages that can display these pop-ups. This is possible basically in two ways. First, the less worrisome is when you are viewing a suspicious website and click on corrupt content there, such as a third-party advertisement or link. Such contents can easily redirect you to a malicious page that is capable of showing you these fake alerts but you may as well drop infections in the background by doing so. In this case you might be lucky and not have any malicious threats on board so it could be enough for you to close the current tab or the browser window to delete 'Safe PC Support Page' Pop-Ups. However, we believe that it is more likely that your computer is infected and this takes us to the second possible way.
If your PC has been infected with adware programs or even potentially unwanted programs, it is quite possible that such a program was responsible for the redirection that took you to this malicious page with the fake alerts. The presence of an adware application is always risky because such an infection can spy on you and present to you customized content with malicious URLs embedded. This way you could even visit legitimate and reputable pages and click on third-party ads there that would normally be reliable but with such an infection on board these can be hijacked. Since most of the time infecting your machine with adware means that you install a whole bundle of malware threats, it is also likely that there are several other threats on board than the one responsible for these fake alerts. You can drop such a bundle when, again, your computer is infected or when you visit suspicious websites and click on corrupt content. Therefore, it is advisable that you check your system with a reliable free online malware scanner right after you delete 'Safe PC Support Page' Pop-Ups.
The fake alerts are all about promoting a potentially unwanted security program and to push you to want to purchase it. This is a rather aggressive way to try to sell any product; therefore, such software is never considered as reliable or useful. This fake alert claims that you need a certain "upgrade" because there are Windows Registry issues on your computer that can cause slow performance and other issues. Thus, you are told to install an offered "PC Update Tool" that can fix all these alleged issues. Of course, the real issues are actually caused by the adware program that is responsible for this redirection since it can use up a lot of CPU power and make your system run slower. You should not fall for this old scam type and should not click to install this potentially unwanted program if your PC security is important to you. We suggest that you remove 'Safe PC Support Page' Pop-Ups right away after you have been exposed to them.
In order for you to be able to eliminate the infection that may cause these annoying and potentially harmful redirections, you need to identify the application that is responsible. You can open up your Control Panel and scan through the installed programs list to spot any suspicious application that should not be on your system and uninstall them all. You can always run a web search to find out whether an application is to be trusted or better not. We have included a guide for you below this article that helps you uninstall applications if you are not familiar with the necessary steps. Please also remember that it is essential that you keep all your programs and drivers up-to-date if you want to prevent cyber crooks from gaining easy access to your system. The best solution is to install a trustworthy anti-malware program likes SpyHunter.
