Posted: February 27, 2020

The 'Your computer is low on memory' pop-ups are part of a simple online tactic that aims to trick users into downloading a dodgy piece of software that may often be advertised as a PC optimization utility. The exact software that the 'Your computer is low on memory' pop-ups promotes may vary – in some cases, it might be a Potentially Unwanted Program (PUP) that poses as a PC optimizer, while in other situations it may be a browser add-on that claims to improve the functionality of your Web browser. We guarantee that the software that the 'Your computer is low on memory' pop-ups promotes is not useful, and you should not agree to download it.

One of the easiest ways to avoid tactics like the one used by the 'Your computer is low on memory' pop-ups is to remember that Web browser alerts and pop-ups are never a good source of information about your computer's health, performance and safety – any pop-up that claims to contain details about a virus infection, performance issue, or a system error is almost certainly a part of a scheme.

If you encounter the 'Your computer is low on memory' pop-ups, you should close them immediately, and leave the website that spawned them. If you have already downloaded a file promoted by the 'Your computer is low on memory' pop-ups, then we advise you to run a reputable anti-malware scanner that will remove any unwanted applications that might have been brought to your computer.
