NoblePCAP – What Does It Do?
NoblePCAP is classified as risky software. This does not make it a virus, but it may be just as dangerous. Once installed on your system, the program may modify its Run and RunOnce Windows registry keys, allowing it to run automatically when you turn on your computer.
When NoblePCAP runs, it may start to perform several different scans, that may end up detecting a lot of errors:
But to remove those errors, this application wants you to upgrade to its full version. This is highly inadvisable because these riskware apps are reported to display these scans only for money, and their developers likely do not care if the errors shown are even existent.
And not only this app may run a lot of scans and interrupt you while you are casually using your computer, but it may do other things as well. One of them could be a pop-up, like the one below, asking to call “tech support”:
Calling this support number is highly inadvisable because these so-called support people may only lure you even deeper into the scam and may even request remote access to your computer to “fix the errors”. After they pretend to fix errors, they may want you to pay them hundreds of dollars for the service.
