I wrote this article to help you remove Internet Explorer Critical ERROR. This Internet Explorer Critical ERROR removal guide works for all Windows versions.

If security alerts with the heading Internet Explorer Critical ERROR are appearing on your screen, there is a misleading program on your system. We are using the term misleading to refer to the rogue software because the messages contain false information. According to the Internet Explorer Critical ERROR report, the system has contracted a Trojan horse called RDN/Trojan.worm/055BCC8375597. This is not true. You have not been infected with this virus. The warning messages are trying to make you believe you have been, so that you would do as they tell you to. The real problem is the malicious software behind the Internet Explorer Critical ERROR pop-ups. Security experts have flagged it as a potentially unwanted program (PUP).

The sinister tool is distributed via bundles, spam emails, corrupted websites, and compromised links. The types of programs which carry it include freeware, shareware, and pirated copies of paid utilities. The host is set to process the shady tool when installed. The PUP will be mentioned in the terms and conditions which is to say that you will be able to detect it. Make sure you read the end user license agreement (EULA) of all tools you add to your computer. Note that it is vital to select the custom or advanced installation mode. The Internet Explorer Critical ERROR PUP will be listed as a bonus app which you can add for free. The option may not be included in the automatic or basic mode.

When using a spam email for the transfer, the fraud artist will also need a file. The Internet Explorer Critical ERROR PUP will be merged with a text document, an image, an archive, a zipped folder or another host. When opening the attachment, the download and install of the covert program will be launched automatically. Spammers often write on behalf of existing companies and organizations. Do not take the sender’s identity as a guarantee. Look up the email address the letter was sent from. You can visit the official website of the corresponding entity for reference. Drive-by installations happen when entering an infected web domain. You should do your research on unfamiliar platforms.

The Internet Explorer Critical ERROR Virus

Once the PUP has entered your system, it will begin displaying the fake security alerts. The Internet Explorer Critical ERROR warnings state that the aforementioned Trojan has attempted to access login credentials and banking information from the Internet Explorer web browser. The messages appear in two formats. First, you will be redirected from the website you are currently viewing. The PUP will load a page with a red background and white text. This is how security alerts are usually shown by the Windows operating system. The page will assure you that the attack has been neutralized and no data has been stolen. However, it will explain that you must take measures to prevent further attacks from the supposed threat.

The second window will explain more on the matter. It also begins with the phrase Internet Explorer Critical ERROR to indicate that it is connected to the latter. The additional information concerns the threat. This alert is not loaded in a browser page. Instead, it is displayed as a system message. Upon describing the supposed threat, it lists a toll free hot line where you can get technical support. Now is the time to mention that there are two variants of the PUP. They only differ by the telephone line they provide. The corresponding numbers are +1(888)-780-0587 and +1(800)-757-326. They are operated by agents who work in collaboration with the developers of the PUP. If you call, they will try to gain your trust by describing the issues you are currently experiencing.

The bogus technical support agents know what is happening on your system because they know how the PUP behind the Internet Explorer Critical ERROR messages works. This knowledge helps them sound convincing. They will state that you need a particular anti-virus utility in order to remove the threat. You will have to purchase it from them. This is an elaborate scam. The only problem on your system is the PUP which is displaying the Internet Explorer Critical ERROR alerts. You need to take measures against it. Do not buy the security application. It is not needed, nor will it be helpful. You should not call the technical support hot line to begin with. It may not be toll free in reality.
