Fraudsters rely on the fact that users do not read what is written in the installation window and mindlessly click on "OK" button (as it happens most often). These tricks aren’t very sophisticated, but they work pretty well on inexperienced or inattentive users that do not pay enough attention to the safety of their PCs.

Windows has blocked the execution of this application to prevent further infections on your PC.” In addition, Antivirus10 puts the deferred task to open sites with pornographic content in Internet Explorer.
