I have Windows 7 installed with latest updates and periodically scanned with latest "Malwarebytes" and "Avast free Anti-malwares" on-line all OK and normal. This morning after installation of a free application called Readon TV Player, Version 7.6, downloaded from www.downloads.com
(please noted that I ALWAYS scanned any downloads for virus-free with Avast/Malwarebytes prior to installations) and clicked the player, I then prompted with both a voice-prompt and a screen-prompt telling me that my PC has been compromised that my PC's security is at stake! In addition the screen-prompt locked me out from other mouse-activities and constantly prompting me that I should contact their: Certified Live Technician on a toll-free number instead. I did that but the other end said that he wanted to remotely assess my PC to find out the conditions at my end. I immeditely suspected it might be a "trick" and hanged up.
I resetted my PC and rebooted Windows. Then I sequently scanned with a) Windows Defender which found OK, b) full Malwarebytes scan which also found OK and lastly c) Avast for both virues, network security and even my Firefox add-ons which also found OK too!
So judging from this, am I experienced a "SCAM" via the new applicatiopn (Readon TV player) through my internet connections, or have I still accidentially got my PC infected with some security virus but not being able to "remove" by Windows Defender, Malwarebytes, and even Avast Scans?? Is their any other things I should do BEFORE I can finally declare it is ALL cleared on my existing PC??
Thank you for any suggestion!!
P.S: I have already unistalled that Readon TV player from my PC.
