Virus Removal

What is a Virus?
A virus (a form of malware) in its most basic definition is a script or program written to perform a task with some form of malicious intent. Viruses can come in many different forms. They can be embedded in images or web sites, they can be sent as an attachment in an e-mail message; they can even be embedded in a music file. This is why it’s important to be careful whose emails you read, and also make sure you download your music legally. When you hear about worms, Trojan horses, or logic bombs in the news, these are all forms of viruses.

What is Spyware?
Spyware is a script or program designed to gather information on the infected system. These programs can be designed to record your keystrokes, so when you type a username and password in a site such as your Facebook or bank account, the person receiving the information can now log into those accounts. One particular form of spyware that has been popular lately, is an advertisement for an anti-spyware / anti-virus program that keeps popping up stating that you have spyware and if you purchase their program it’ll remove the spyware. That advertisement IS spyware.

What if my computer is infected?
If you think your computer is infected, it’s very important that you use a repair shop that is well versed in virus / spyware removal. If you’re already infected, in most cases you can’t get rid of the infection by simply installing an anti-virus / anti-spyware program. If the virus is running in the background it can stealth itself or even damage the anti-virus program upon installation. We have virus and spyware removal down to a science. We use multiple anti-virus and anti-spyware programs in conjunction with software the we’ve written to detect and remove viruses and spyware from your system. If you’re worried about your computer being infected, we’re here to help. Give us a call today!
