How to remove Zeus Virus Detected from the computer and browsers

Firstly, you can be sure that if you see the words "Zeus Virus Detected" in your browser, your computer is not infected with either the Zeus virus or any other. You somehow got to a malicious site that displays a message in the form of a browser warning. Warnings from the browser are specially made so that the tab can’t be closed until you confirm that you have read the message. In such messages (when they do not come from scammers), most often it is reported about some features of the site you are visiting about which you should know. Often, with the help of such messages the browser warns you that malicious files can be on the site. Scammers modify this message, and it claims that the user's computer is infected with a certain virus that only specially trained technical support agents can remove. To get rid of the virus, the user is offered to call the specified number, otherwise the computer will be automatically blocked to prevent further damage.


Zeus Virus Detected adware

All statements in this message are a lie, from the beginning to the end. There is no Zeus virus, there are no support agents, and your computer will not be blocked. To close the window, you just need to turn off the browser using Task Manager, and then turn it on again. Remember: do not open the window that caused the "lock".



Suchlike programs have the purpose to deceive the user and force him to give money to scammers. The first step in losing money is to call the number indicated in the message. This number is paid, and the cost of each minute can be from $1 to $5 or even more. So, if you believed the scammers and called - you will lose money. Operators of this "call center" will specifically delay the conversation, making it as long as possible so that the user spends as much time as possible. Do not be surprised if you hear an Indian, Chinese or Russian accent - the participants in these scams most often live where it's easiest to hide from justice. When you call the scammers, they will try to find out the program number of your copy of Windows, or will ask you to install the necessary software and provide the data to gain remote access to the system. Having done this, scammers will be able to control your PC from anywhere in the world and make illegal actions with it, thereby exposing you to danger. Also, scammers can offer to purchase a special program that will fix imaginary problems on your PC. Despite the fact that you actually do not get any benefit from the call, scammers will require you to pay for their services, and at the same time try to find out your credit card number, if possible together with all the necessary access codes. If a trusting user gets caught with such a fishing rod, then he can suffer serious material damage, just because he went to the wrong site.

After you close the browser with a virus page, there are two options: either you will never see such a message again, or it will appear in your browser in a few hours or even minutes. The re-appearance of the Zeus Virus Detected message means that your computer is infected by a browser hijacker that will continue to show you a malicious site that triggers a pop-up and a browser lock. In the next part of the article, we will explain in detail how to get rid of the hijacker of browsers.
