Your Windows Computer Is Infected With Viruses is a fake alert that has been designed and is displayed to users seeking to convince them that malicious software has been detected on their computers. Speaking specifically, this alert informs users about “possible traces of malware and phishing/spyware.” We cannot guarantee that your system is clean, but we can assure you that malicious software you have been informed about does not exist on your system. Our specialists who have analyzed a ton of scams say that fake messages claiming that malware has been detected are shown to users expecting that they will take immediate action, e.g. dial the provided telephone number or install promoted software and scan the system with it in order to clean their computers. Surprisingly, Your Windows Computer Is Infected With Viruses does not contain a link for downloading “antimalware software” and it does not promote any telephone number. Of course, we cannot guarantee that other versions of the same scam do not exist. No matter what version of the Your Windows Computer Is Infected With Viruses scam you find displayed on your screen, you should ignore it because it does not tell you the truth.

If Your Windows Computer Is Infected With Viruses has already been displayed to you, do not believe a single word it contains no matter what they tell you. This scam will, most likely, try to convince you that malware has been detected on your PC, and, because of this, your system might be damaged and personal files (e.g. photos) might be lost. Surprisingly, users are not offered to download the program that can clean the system in no time. In addition, they do not find any telephone number left for them, which means that cyber criminals behind this scam do not want users to call them. The majority of similar scams promote telephone numbers that belong to cyber criminals. If users call them, crooks have a chance to convince them to purchase some kind of program for cleaning their computers, obtain some personal information, or gain access to their PCs. Even though Your Windows Computer Is Infected With Viruses did not promote any software and/or telephone number at the time of research, it does not mean that the link and the telephone number cannot be included in the future. No matter which version of this scam you encounter, close it immediately and do not believe a single word it contains because it has only been created to scare you.

Researchers say that users might see Your Windows Computer Is Infected With Viruses after they end up on the following domains: qom007.site/pc, gom009.site/pc, and xom003.site/pc. Of course, other domains might spread this fake alert too. Usually, users do not open them consciously. Instead, they are redirected to them from other domains or click on untrustworthy links. If it is one of those reasons why you see the Your Windows Computer Is Infected With Viruses scam, you will not see it again when you close your browser and do not click on suspicious links/visit dubious domains. Unfortunately, this will not work in all the cases. Specialists say that the appearance of Your Windows Computer Is Infected With Viruses might be linked to the adware program installed on the system too. If you see the fake alert open periodically, it might be installed on your computer as well. Users can download adware from the web themselves, but it is usually spread in software bundles, so they usually do not even notice how these programs enter their computers.  There are hundreds of untrustworthy applications that can enter your system unnoticed again, so you should not keep it unprotected, specialists say.

What you should do if Your Windows Computer Is Infected With Viruses has been displayed to you is closing your web browser immediately. If the fake alert reappears, the chances are high that you will get rid of it once and for all only by erasing an untrustworthy program directly associated with its appearance from your computer. It might be any program, so we suggest inspecting all programs in Control Panel first. If you cannot find suspicious software, scan your system with an antimalware scanner to get bad software removed automatically.
