  • Alright, this is TOTALLY FAKE.
    1) The error code is totally wrong.
    2) Nothing is called "Registry failure of operating system"
    3) What's that website you're in? It looks like a shady website.

    Don't worry, your laptop is fine. IF every website you go to ends up showing this "error" your computer is infected but, I don't believe that's the case. Windows 10 comes with Windows Defender which isn't weak enough to let a virus like that in. But I'm not %100 sure.

    • I think if it's even let in there's a problem this looks like adware and is that windows 10 I can't tell.

    • Show All
    • I have Windows 10 :)

    • Yeah, I saw your update. And I'm assuming that your computer is safe. If you're currently replying back to me from your laptop, then it's very safe to assume that your computer isn't infected. It was just this one website.

Have an opinion?
