I wrote this article to help you remove Call Microsoft Customer Support. This Call Microsoft Customer Support removal guide works for all Windows versions.

The “Call Microsoft Customer Support” pop-up is a sign of trouble. Seeing it appear every time you turn on your PC means that you have an infection on board. A nasty parasite has managed to slither on your machine. A parasite that belongs to the family of scamware. This type of infections should not be underestimated. They are a plague. Their only goal is money. Your money, to be exact. And they rely on pretty nasty and tricky tactics to get it.

Scamware tactics also go by the name of scareware and there is a reason for that. They want their victims to panic as, this way, the crooks behind them could easily get what they want. The point is, don’t give in to the fear and don’t believe “Call Microsoft Customer Support” alerts even for a second. It is all a lie.

According to these warnings, your computer has been infected with Zeus. You are familiar with Zeus, aren’t you? It is a member of the Trojan horse family and it is incredibly dangerous. This is the exact reason why hackers use it. They want you to be scared and they want you to panic. Most people, when they hear the name of any Trojan, really do panic and then they are willing to do whatever it takes to get rid of the virus. That’s why Zeus is the perfect bait. But no not bite!

Do not fall into the trap crooks are setting for you. If you do, you will regret it. The scary alerts, once they inform you that there is a Trojan horse in your system, try to lure you into calling a “toll-free number”. They state that you will get in touch with “specialists” who will help you deal with the hazardous threat your machine is harboring. But there is no Trojan in your system. Do not forget that.

Do not contact these “specialists” under any circumstances. If you do, they will continue lying to you and probably try to make you purchase some expensive but useless program. After all, all they care about it getting money. Do not give them any. The only pest you need to worry about it the nasty scamware. But you don’t need any help to deal with it.

Let alone some expensive program. You can remove it manually by following our detailed removal guide at the end of this article. If you follow the steps in the exact order given, your machine will be infection-free soon enough. Do not hesitate. This is the best course of action you can take. Take it, and everything will get back to normal. The scary alerts will disappear and your PC will be safe again.

To the question how did you get infected with this scamware in the first place the answer is: probably a bundled software. These kinds of pests are often bundled with other programs. To be safe you should check each program in the bundle one by one and there is still a chance to miss something. Downloading a bundle is dangerous and whenever possible you should avoid it. Not to mention that you don’t even know you have downloaded yourself an infection until it acts up and then it is a little be too late. However, you have failed this time.

Next time, don’t choose the Basic options but go for the Custom ones. Carefully read the Term and Condition and be careful not to agree with something you actually disagree with. Also, keep in mind that hackers haven`t forgotten the old-fashioned way of using spam emails which go directly to your regular inbox, not even your spam box. Delete suspicious emails right away as clicking on them might mean inviting a nasty virus on your computer. Also. Third-party pop-ups are also unreliable and most of the times they are corrupted as well. Do not gamble with your safety unless you want to cause yourself damage.
