Microsoft Tech Support Scam Removal

Before telling you how to get rid of Tech Support Scam ‘Microsoft Help Desk’ let us first of all, know what it is and what it actually does to your system.

Microsoft Help Desk- an Intro

It is a virus which alarms, internet users about existing threats to their computer. But in reality, no threat exists in your computer. It is just a tech scam which is trying to panic you so that you purchase its recommended software.

Some users panic in reality and download its recommended utility. Most of the time’s utility is infected with viruses and malware which become a danger to the security of your device.

Immediately after it alarms you about a threat, Blue Screen of Death displays that your system is shutting down because of an error.

And then it may present you a toll free number and prompt you to call this number.

How to identify Microsoft Help Desk?

No matter how much smarter will the developers of Microsoft Help Desk try to be but they have left some proof that makes this App sound illegitimate to any user.

So go for its removal as quickly as possible before it entangles your device software.

Sometimes they may contain Ransomware and thus result in a trouble with a computer user. It may prompt you to restart the computer, but never ever comply with its suggestions. A restart may increase the infection instead of bringing it down. It can hijack your internet browsers and steal your private information.

Irony is Microsoft Security Essentials can only detect it, but cannot block it.

If you will give call to its toll free number, you will be made to perform a number of steps which will eventually lead to remote connection to your computer.

Or you may redirect to a site which is a pool of severe cyber infection.

There are two ways to do it. One is Automatic Removal and the other is Manual Procedure.
