Windows 10: Pop Up

    Pop Up


    With all this adware junk I now get a popup with tel # 855 308 5221 . They claim my pc is compromised. I just keep closing it but it just repeats over and over. I have Mcafee security but it gets thru that operation with ease. What can I do ?? Thanks

    Suggest you d/l & run AdwCleaner, it's good at ferreting out adware.

    AdwCleaner Download

    Also, d/l, install & run Malwarebytes. The free version will work fine.

    McAfee is not a highly thought of AV, you may wish to consider switching to something with less problems. It often causes more problems then it fixes.

    Meanwhile, do not click on any of the pop ups that claim they will "fix" your PC, or waste your time calling the number. This is all scamware.
