To work on your weak spots, “Critical Error” claims that your PC has been invaded by a spying virus that is capable of stealing all of your personal details regarding passwords and credit card details and blocking your system. Moreover, it also claims that upon closing this message, your PC will be disabled to threaten you not to close the message. They recommend that you have to call (“1-866-314-4893“) as means of fake support team so that they could ask you for money to solve the problem.
