Remove Microsoft.com.cdn.pcsafer5.win Fake Alerts (Microsoft Scam)

If your web browser is constantly being redirected to the microsoft.com.cdn.pcsafer5.win/newlander/microsoftwarningx.html?isp= site, then it is possible that you have an adware program installed on your computer.


This Microsoft.com.cdn.pcsafer5.win redirect is usually caused by adware installed on your computer. These adware programs are bundled with other free software that you download off of the Internet. Unfortunately, some free downloads do not adequately disclose that other software will also be installed and you may find that you have installed adware without your knowledge.
Once this malicious program is installed, whenever you will browse the Internet, unwanted advertisements will pop-up on web pages that you visit. These ads are aimed to promote the installation of additional questionable content including web browser toolbars, optimization utilities and other products, all so the adware publisher can generate pay-per-click revenue.
You may also see in the browser status bar the following messages: “Waiting for Microsoft.com.cdn.pcsafer5.win”, “Transferring data from Microsoft.com.cdn.pcsafer5.win”, “Looking up Microsoft.com.cdn.pcsafer5.win”, “Read Microsoft.com.cdn.pcsafer5.win”, “Connected to Microsoft.com.cdn.pcsafer5.win”.
When infected with this adware program, other common symptoms include:
  • Advertising banners are injected with the web pages that you are visiting.
  • Random web page text is turned into hyperlinks.
  • Browser popups appear which recommend fake updates or other software.
  • Other unwanted adware programs might get installed without the user’s knowledge.
You should always pay attention when installing software because often, a software installer includes optional installs. Be very careful what you agree to install.
Always opt for the custom installation and deselect anything that is not familiar, especially optional software that you never wanted to download and install in the first place. It goes without saying that you should not install software that you don’t trust.

Your old Firefox profile will be placed on your desktop in a folder named “Old Firefox Data“.
