Can’t Remove “Microsoft has detected some suspicious activity” +1-844-313-8541 (SCAM) pop-ups?
To make things clear, there’s no suspicious activity on your computer. There is an adware-type program, though. It’s the reason you stumble across “Microsoft has detected some suspicious activity” pop-ups and alerts on a daily basis. Another possibility is that you’ve accidentally installed a PUP (potentially unwanted program). Either way, your computer is no longer infection-free. This particular adware/PUP is causing the pop-ups. Logically, this program has to be tackled ASAP. You’re now involved in a nasty tech support scam so the sooner you take action, the better. Immediately after installation, the parasite goes after your browsers. It modifies their default settings and injects them with the pop-ups. You see, all these alerts have one thing in common. They are all fake. These messages are caused by the virus so they have nothing to do with Microsoft. On the other hand, the pop-ups have a lot to do with cyber criminals. Now, how does the scheme work? Once your browsers get modified (behind your back), these alerts start popping up. They are incredibly stubborn and obnoxious. Furthermore, they’re fake. According to these messages, your machine is in serious trouble. As we mentioned, though, all you should be worried about is the adware/PUP. Its bogus security alerts are deceptive, misleading and very dangerous. Their one goal is so scare you into dialing +1-844-313-8541. This is a phone number which is supposed to contact you with a Microsoft tech support team. It actually contacts you with hackers. If you believe the pop-ups, you might give into your panic and anxiety. And if you call the number, hackers will sell you some useless “anti-malware” program. Ultimately, they will steal your money. That’s what tech support frauds are all about. Hackers’ illegitimate profit online. Now that you know money is at the bottom of this whole thing, are you feeling safe? The virus constantly bombards you with utterly fake alerts about non-existent infections. It is manipulating you and attempting to cause you damage. What is the solution to that? Don’t let the parasite harm you. Restrain yourself from dialing ANY phone number these pop-ups force on you. Even if you don’t buy hackers’ software, you might disclose some private data. For instance, your bank account information. Needless to say hackers will find a way to make money out of your sensitive details. It should be enough to mention identity theft to make it clear how dangerous that is. In addition, the parasite spies on all your browsing-related activities. Don’t hesitate and get rid of the virus.
How did I get infected with?
Have you recently downloaded some illegitimate software bundle? This is probably the most popular malware distribution method out there.

Stay away from anything suspicious-looking you may find in your inbox. Taking care of your PC and keeping it safe should always be your number one priorities online.
