What does it do

Freeware bundles are frequently used to spread ad-supported software because it wouldn’t be installed otherwise. These types of infections often come together with freeware as extra offers, and while you could choose to not install them, a lot of users end up installing them since they do not see them. Advanced (Custom) mode are the settings you should pick instead. If Advanced settings disclose something, ensure everything is unchecked. It would be a good idea to always unmark everything because if you weren’t correctly informed about their installation, they do not belong on your system. Pay close attention to what you install onto the PC, and how you do it, unless you wish to regularly be stuck having to eliminate ERR_SPDY_PROTOCOL_ERROR or similar.

All of these types of warnings are identical, they all want users to believe that their OS is encountering some type of problems. It may be warning you about a virus, system error, licensing issues, etc, scammers will create all kinds of schemes. It’s also common for the alert to warn you about data loss or leaks because users who panic are more likely to believe the scam. Users would then be suggested to dial the give number, which would connect them to con artists posing as tech-support. No legitimate company will ever ask you to call them, so remember that. For example, if Apple or Microsoft is requesting you to call them, it’s most certainly a scam. These con artists would attempt to convince you that your system has an issue, and while they can fix it, it would cost money. Tech-support scams aren’t very convincing but because less-computer knowledgeable people have not come across them before, they might fall for them. And we can see how some less computer savvy people could fall for them, because even if they dismiss the first alert, after they start showing up routinely, they may think that something is genuinely wrong. However, even if the warning looks completely real, you need to still investigate using a trustworthy search engine. Chances are, the first couple of results will prove that it’s a scam. So do not pay any attention to the alerts and just deal with the issue. If you regularly get these alerts, you just need to uninstall ERR_SPDY_PROTOCOL_ERROR ad-supported software to make them stop.
