Owner Kevin McClung with KPM Computer Solutions in Kansas said that many of the various pop-ups that arise are of concern and users should treat them as such, KAKE TV reports. He used an online service for a computer he built and that service informed him he was in need of 15 fixes.
"It's telling me I have some settings I need to change, internet settings, startup programs," McClung told the news source. "But it is kind of interesting on a clean load of windows, on a computer that's never really been connected to the internet it's going to be $50 for me to fix their problems."
McClung's advice is to capitalize on the assistance of a local store or benefit from help offered by a technician whom they trust.
Those options are markedly preferable as compared to implementing the online software that pops-up on computer screens, he told the news source.
