I wrote this article to help you remove Warning Call (844) 763-5838. This Warning Call (844) 763-5838 removal guide works for Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer.

Warning Call (844) 763-5838 appears as a pop-up message. It talks about problems on the computer. There is no merit to the notification. The bogus alert is displayed by an adware application, used for a malicious purpose. The rogue program tries to make users follow its instructions. Doing what you are prompted to would lead to further problems. The best course of action is to discard the Warning Call (844) 763-5838 pop-ups and have the adware behind them removed.

How does the adware behind Warning Call (844) 763-5838 work?

The clandestine program works through an executable. Two separate files have been identified as the source for Warning Call (844) 763-5838. They do not work in unison. You will only find one of them on your system. The more common of the two files is EM.exe. When downloaded, it is placed in the directory %AppData%\Event Monitor. The other executable is titled WinInfos.exe. It would be stored in the directory %Windir%\cWinInfos\168271\WinInfos.exe. When the Warning Call (844) 763-5838 pop-ups start appearing, one of these files is bound to be present on your machine.

Fake alerts convey a message which could sound reliable. In many cases, the notification prompts the user to take immediate action. The Warning Call (844) 763-5838 pop-ups will urge you to make a call right away. The listed number is said to be a tech support hot line. To make the alerts seem legitimate, the adware lists a precise problem. It will notify you that a certain executable has just crashed on your system. The message states that your computer may be at risk. Notice that the statement is indefinite. This is a clear sign that it is fake. A genuine alert would not make assumptions. Furthermore, it would give the name of the infection, responsible for your issues. You can only trust anti-virus programs for security notifications.

The Warning Call (844) 763-5838 Virus

We advise you not to call the hot line. It is operated by bogus technicians who try to convince people that there is a threat on their system. The agent will tell you that you need to acquire a certain program to cleanse your machine. The software in question is not reliable. It could turn out to be harmful. Pay no attention to the Warning Call (844) 763-5838 alerts. You should not just ignore the presence of the pop-ups, though. The adware behind them can penetrate your browser and gather information on you, like your history, cookies, keystrokes, IP address, geographic location, email, telephone number, user names, passwords and other private details. The people behind the furtive program can proceed to sell your data on darknet markets without asking for your permission.

How did the adware behind Warning Call (844) 763-5838 get access to my computer?

There are two possible explanations for the presence of the rogue software on your system. The most likely scenario is that you acquired an unreliable program and installed it without reading through the terms and conditions. The adware behind Warning Call (844) 763-5838 travels with pirated copies of licensed programs, freeware and shareware tools. The sinister program gets included as a bonus. You have to find where the option for it is listed amid the separate steps and deselect it. Be sure to read the end user license agreement (EULA) of the utilities you intend to add to your system.

The other way for the adware behind Warning Call (844) 763-5838 to get transferred to your machine is via a spam email. Spammers hide shady programs behind attachments. The person behind the letter will try to make it look reliable. He can write on behalf of an existing entity, like the national post, an institution, a bank, a courier firm, a social network, a government branch or the police department. To tell if a given message is legitimate, check the email account the sender has used to contact you.

  1. Dear Mr. Stoyan,
    Hi. Hoping that you are v.well.
    Unfortunately I did fall a victim for those malicious.
    I phoned them yesterday, & I gave them the permission to enter the laptop that I’m using.
    Only at the end we discovered that they were fakes when they insisted to deal with to fix the lap by reducing the service’s fees,which supposed to be paid online.
    Kindly … How to correct our mistake ?.
    Thank you.
    Sincerely,

    • Hello Duraid,

      Unfortunately you fell victim of so called “Tech Support Scam”. These criminals craft/infect various websites with malicious code and when a visitor comes at that site he sees the message you saw: “… you have a problem, call XXXXXXXX to fix it”.

      I really hope you did not pay them a penny. Generally, they do not install additional malware on the computer, they just want to scam you to pay for non-existing computer problems.

      If you really have any doubts please download some free antivirus as Avast, Avira and scan your PC. Also, I can advise you to change your online passwords (just in case, because there are tools that can grab them from your browser, if you remembered them in it).

      Regards,
      Daniel
