Few days ago, I have upgraded my operating system to Windows 10. Everything was fine and all programs are working smoothly despite the fact that I have warned that some program will not work in this update.
It was nice using Windows 10 and Microsoft Edge as the new browser until yesterday when a virus struck my computer. A fake virus alert suddenly pop-ups saying that my computer is infected. Here is the complete message:
“Microsoft Antivirus has found critical process activity on your PC. You need to clean your computer to prevent system breakage.”
I decided to close the Edge but it won’t let me do that. I have able to close the message box with fake warning but after a fee seconds, another one pop-up on the screen with this alert:
“Microsoft Security Essentials detected potential threats that might compromise your privacy or damage your computer. You need to clean your computer immediately to prevent the system crash.”
This fake alert message also required me to call certain toll free number stating that a Microsoft Technician is going to fix this Edge browser lockup virus. Instead of doing that, I am much compatible searching the web for the solution. After all, I know that this is a fake scam technical support trying to make money from this fraudulent activity.
