To help identify whether a pop-up or other warning is real, or whether it might have come from one of the many, many fake scams, Sunbelt Software put out a short guide. While it only lists a few relatively basic steps (check against a list of known bad apps, run a Google search, etc.), it's still good info to have.

How to tell if it is rogue:

1. The program performs unsolicited intrusion/penetration into the system
2. Explicit enforcement/offering to buy a higher/pro version of the same program.
3. Illegitimate advertisements/offers in program.
