Our specialists say that users could be redirected into sites showing the fake notifications after clicking suspicious advertising content. Therefore, one of the things that you should do to stay away from alerts like 'The system is badly damaged, virus found (4)!' Pop-Ups is to avoid unreliable advertisements that are often found on file-sharing web pages and other doubtful sites.

There are a few things that indicate 'The system is badly damaged, virus found (4)!' Pop-Ups are fictitious. First of all, Windows security tools are installed on your computer, and so they should not be displayed on a website. Also, users should notice that their browsers do not display lock icon identifying a site is legit near the fake Microsoft web page’s URL address. Not to mention, the site’s URL address does not look like it belongs to Microsoft at all. For instance, our encountered website was called asecure1.info/en_webwindowsnew, and its French version was named asecure1.info/fr_webwindowsnew. Lastly, what shows that 'The system is badly damaged, virus found (4)!' Pop-Ups are fake is the fact that the threats they claim to detect cannot be verified. To be more precise, the scanning results do not say how the detected threats are called or where are they located on the device. A legit scanning tool should always provide such information.

After you reset your browser, it might be a good idea to scan your system with a reliable antimalware tool too, to make sure that there are no other possible threats.
