How to remove (uninstall) DW6VB6

Fraud on the Internet is evolving every day and criminals invent new ways of cheating ordinary users. The risk can be covered in any program or on any site, but all criminal schemes are common: they are based on several basic emotions, such as greed, curiosity and fear. Greed causes the user to install adware that promises him a super-bargains and discounts (later, these programs only slow down your computer, and display ads on each site). Curiosity makes the user navigate through unreliable links, and try to read the news, with cryptic captions (such article sites often do not contain any information and infinitely redirect the user from site to site, clogging computer with viruses). And finally, the fear - the main weapon of hackers who create tech support scams, ransomware, screen lockers and other suchlike types of malware. Such programs are created specifically to scare the user and make him forget about the basic rules of computer security. In our today's article we will discuss a program called DW6VB6, which enters without asking the user's computer and tries to force him to pay the money for non-existent services.

DW6VB6 tech support scam operates by using a browser. This program gets on your computer together with any advertising program, and changes the settings of browser. The changes most often are in one: DW6VB6 adds a new registry string that initiates the transition to suspicious sites every few minutes. On these websites uses sees a message states that his computer is locked due to virus and spyware infection. In addition, the report with astonishing accuracy indicates that all the pictures, mailbox passwords and credit card details were stolen. The user is immediately offered help: he can call the toll-free number +18886098597 or 0800-090-3829 (numbers change periodically), and someone immediately will do something with his computer, and everything will be alright.

In this situation, the scammers are hoping that the fear will take his toll. Customers who have ever been victims of theft of a credit card or any other fraud using it - know what problems can the loss of number and password from the credit card call. Fraudsters may have time to spend a large sum of money, and user will have to block the card and re-roll it. Faced with this problem, many people start to panic and call the number indicated, to solve the problem. We strongly advise you not to do so. If you encounter something suspicious on the Internet, the first thing to do is to assess the situation from the outside. Think about how many times during the use of Windows you have received calls from Microsoft Support, and how many times the support staff asked you to call them back? Never. Then why would they suddenly ask about the call now? In addition, the addresses of sites on which is displayed a warning, do not look like the official Microsoft website addresses. The addresses of these sites consist of random sets of numbers and letters that indicate malicious sites rather than the sites of the largest software developing company. We hope that you now believe in severity of DW6VB6, and now we will try to explain you how the scammers make money via this program.

Most important thing for DW6VB6 developers is to force the user to make a call. Of course, the number is not free, contrary to what is stated in the original notification. If you call the number indicated, you will communicate with "experts" that don’t know nothing about computers, but well versed in how to wheedle money from other people. The conversation will be tightened in all possible ways, scammers will offer you a variety of services and software, as well as ask you to provide the serial number of your Windows. In any case, if the user has made a call - cheaters win, because each minute of a call is expensive.
