What is Error 268D3-XC00037 Scam?

Error 268D3-XC00037 Scam is a new threat that can fool unsuspecting computer users into calling a telephone number in hope of technical support.

These are also called technical support scams because they pretend to provide you tech support if you call the given telephone number. But, as we have said, such an attack is always about selling you a low-quality program or service, which you do not even need. What you really need is that you remove Error 268D3-XC00037 Scam from your computer as soon as possible along with all other possible threats.

There are two possible ways for you to end up on "" that is supposed to show you the fake alert; although, this page seems to be down already. First of all, the less problematic way is when you click on an unsafe third-party advertisement or link on a suspicious website and get redirected to this malicious page.

Scammers either use a totally random URL address to display such fake warnings or they want you to believe that you have landed on an official Microsoft support page and make sure that the URL contains something resembling.

Therefore, it is vital for you to know that these threats can infiltrate your system almost unnoticed, i.e., in a software bundle. You can drop such a bundle when you want to download a free program from a suspicious freeware or torrent site, when you click on an unsafe third-party advertisement on a shady website, or when your computer is already infected with, for example, adware and this infection displays such corrupt ads on your screen.
