What is 24x7 Help?
24x7 Help by Crawler LLC is an annoying alert that seeks to trick PC users into contacting a really questionable support service. Please, do NOT call the number, which is given in this alert, because this may lead you to a greatly increased telephone bill. No matter how trustworthy this alert looks and what it claims, it should be ignored. Another reason, why you should do that, is that 24x7 Help can also trick you into downloading potentially unwanted applications. According to PC security experts, this program promotes Spyware Terminator 2012, PC Performance Optimizer PCRx and Online Vault Backup. If you don't want to start seeing exaggerated pop-up ads, start suffering from redirects to unknown websites, slowdowns and other issues, you should stay away from it. Why do you see these notifications? The answer is very simple - they appear on your computer because it was hijacked by a potentially unwanted application, which belongs to the company known as Crawler LLC. Beware that 24x7 Help ads may appear on your computer without downloading any kind of PUP. That's because such programs are mostly spread in a bundle with freeware and shareware. If you want to protect yourself, you should use tips that are given in next paragraph. Finally, we must add that we have noticed many discussions that involve this application and call it 'virus'. In reality, potentially unwanted programs, adwares and browser hijackers don't belong to any kind of malware. Nevertheless, you should keep in mind that they can hardly help you to eliminate potential dangers and other problems on your computer, and may even "inform" you about invented ones. That's why you should simply ignore alerts that belong to 24x7 Help and uninstall this program from the system. For that you can easily use SpyHunter.
