Unfortunately, it's more likely that after clicking on these alerts, you will accept to install another suspicious program, such as adware or browser hijacker. In addition to that, if you install Qbm.warmmovie.com pop-up virus, you should also consider privacy related issues. An adware that causes such and similar notifications may try to collect personally non-identifiable information about your web browsing habits, such as web search queries, websites visited, data entered, time spent, email address, IP address, PC's location and so on. Even though you may find such information unimportant and don't mind sharing it with third parties, we want to warn you about several ways how such data may be used in order to deceive you. For example, third parties may flood you with personalized advertisements and, in this way, increase the chances that you will click on them. In addition to that, your email address might be taken and flooded by tons of spam. To put is simple, Qbm.warmmovie.com is not a malicious application itself.

Otherwise, you may end up with another adware or browser hijacker on your computer and start experiencing issues, such as an excessive amount of commercial advertisements, redirects to suspicious websites, slowdowns and so on.

Of course, it may be free of various add-ons, plug-ins, toolbars and extensions and travel alone. However, more frequently free programs are filled with 'optional downloads' that needs to be unchecked. In order to do that, you have to select Advanced or Custom installation option and check everything step-by-step. If you spot any clues about additional components, make sure that you opt out of them.
