Do you get pop ups on your computer saying your anti-virus software is out of date or your computer is infected, but you don’t remember having that anti-virus program? That’s because you don’t. These are rogue anti-virus programs.
The anti-virus programs pretend to be legitimate programs, but end up locking your computer making it appear you have a virus. They will say that your computer has viruses and you will need to activate the program in order to resume use of your computer. To activate the program they require a credit card. This is a scam. Never give out your credit card information.
These anti-virus programs are designed to scare you into buying their product or your computer will not work. But, don’t worry, they can be removed and your computer will be fine. Call us at Up & Running Computer Solutions, Inc. and we will help you get that rogue anti-virus program removed.
