Windows® Security Alert Popup
How to get rid of Windows Security Alert Popup?
Popup alerts are the alerts which arise in your computer unexpectedly when your system encounters any problem. Windows Security Center is a spyware program that acts like a legitimate software but is actually a scam to steal your money. This spyware usually infects computers via malicious downloads and displays alerts and pop-ups claiming that your computer is affected by malware. The “Windows Security Alert” popup is a misleading piece of information, displayed by some fake online system scanners, for example, Allinonesecurityv.com has made its job to sell the rogue antispyware program-Personal Antivirus. This popup allows you to either choose to 'ignore it', or 'remove all', which then redirects you straight to the purchase page of Personal Antivirus.
