    What is Enter A Product Key:

    Threat Classification: Ransomware/Rogueware

    Enter A Product Key is a nasty, deceptive and bogus and phishing pop-up, which first goal is to deceive computer users, that their Microsoft Windows copy has not been properly activated and to re-activate this edition of Windows, they need a product key. The Product Key is usually located either on the original Windows DVD box, or in the e-mail message, that was received together with the receipt, after you bought  Windows. The user is than asked to enter the genuine windows activation key or to call the Microsoft Technician Helpline 1-888-414-4284. Now is the time to make one thing clear1-888-414-4284 help line number is in no way affiliated with/or to the Microsoft Corporation, the rightful owner of the Microsoft Windows Operating System. Upon a closer inspection, on the malicious “Enter A Product Key” Lock Screen, you will notice, on the top-right is located an inscription Microsoft Technician Helpline +1-888-414-4284“!!! However, the “Microsoft Technician Helpline” has nothing to do with the Microsoft Corporation, the rightful owner of the Microsoft Windows Operating Systems. If your computer starts showing the most annoying and extremely strange “Enter a product key” Lock Screen pop-up message:

    Enter a product key
    Your product key should be on the box that the Windows DVD came in or
    Pin an email that shows you bought Windows.

    PRODUCT KEY XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX
