Scareware Prevention:

  • Scareware is the new term for the "False Security" Pop-Up Messages that you may receive while browsing the internet
  • The first sign of the pop-up itself has done no damage to your computer yet, it is not until you click on the pop-up that it then installs the 'virus' that will begin to do damage to your computer
  • Damage to your computer includes (but is not limited to) disabling your real AntiVirus, disabling your Firewall, disabling your Internet Explorer - all the while trying to get you to send them your credit card number to purchase 'their' solution
  • The best prevention is that you DON'T CLICK ON THE POP-UP when it comes up, we are not even sure that clicking the X in the upper right hand corner of the window is ok, Blocking Pop-Ups on your Computer might keep you from getting these to begin with.
  • If you have one of these pop-ups appear, you can Rick Click on the Task Bar and open Task Manager and then 'End' all Internet Explorer application tasks to make it go away / or simply Restart your computer - do either of these methods without clicking on the Pop-Up in any way!
  • Shown below are the many varieties of Scareware that have been found
