About this threat

You Have A Trojan! are false alerts that will attempt to fool you into believing that there is something wrong with your machine. This is a regular tech-support scam that uses scare tactics to make users call certain numbers where they would be asked to provide remote access to their system. If these warnings are caused by an advertising-supported software, they will be pretty intrusive, show up over and over again, no matter how many times you close them. An advertising-supported software is often attached to freeware, and if you don’t unmark it, it will install together with the software. The alerts aren’t going to endanger your operating system, as long as you don’t call the con artists. If you did call them, you would be put through to people who scam others for a living, and they would ask for permission to remotely connect to your computer, do some weird fix, and then charge money, essentially for nothing. Keep in mind that before you authorize anyone to have remote access to your OS, you should check them and make sure they are who they say they are. And when it comes to this warning, don’t pay any attention to it, it is not real. In order to make the advertisements go away, you must uninstall  You Have A Trojan!.

Why are the warnings popping up

Frequently, adware are obtained via free program packages. A lot of freeware have something attached to them, and you won’t see them if Default settings are what you opt for during installation. We recommend choosing Advanced (Custom) mode as otherwise, the attached items will not become visible. Advanced will show you the items, and you just have to uncheck them. And while those items might not necessarily be harmful, if they did not disclose their installation properly, they should not be permitted to install. If you want to have to remove You Have A Trojan! or similar for the last time, start be more attentive when it comes to what you install onto your machine.

Whatever alert you are seeing on your screen, we can assure that it is trying to make you think that your system has came across an issue and requires urgent attention. Con artists will create all kinds schemes, such as malware, licensing or computer problems. It’s also common for the alert to include warnings about data loss or leaks because users who panic are more likely to believe the scam. A phone number would also be flashing somewhere, which would supposedly connect you to tech-support people who would repair the problem. One thing to remember is that no legitimate software or security business will ever ask users to call them. So if supposedly Microsoft or Apple is requesting you to call them through some adverts, know that it isn’t real. These scammers would attempt to convince you that your system has a problem, and that they’re the only ones who can resolve the problem, which of course, would cost you a lot. The reason these tech-support scams are still around is because less-computer knowledgeable users still fall for them. Even if you do not pay attention to the first advertisement, it would show up over and over again later on, so someone falling for such a scam isn’t hard to imagine. If you do not believe us when we claim legitimate companies would not use browser alerts to warn you about malware, you could always investigate the provided number. Possibly, the first few results will prove that it is a scam. Now that it’s been confirmed to be a scam, just close the alert and deal with what’s causing them. If the pop-ups are popping up regularly, you will have to locate and remove You Have A Trojan! adware.
