Computer viruses are a fact of life. The best way to avoid getting a computer virus, malware, or spyware on your computer is to have working, up-to-date Anti-Virus software. However, even if you have an active, paid antivirus subscription, you can still get a virus! And if you do, you’ll need a virus removal. Antivirus software isn’t perfect and that’s why we’re here to help. We remove viruses or any kind of malware or spyware from computers.
Check out some of the most common types of computer viruses below:
Fake Antivirus Software – One of the most common ways that viruses try to fool people is by pretending to be an Antivirus. The virus will masquerade as an Antivirus and try to convince you to give them your credit card to “remove the viruses” it found when it “scanned” your computer. Don’t do it though! It’s a scam! Bring it to the professionals; we can clean it out for you!
Pop Up Advertising – You’ll know you have a computer virus if you’re always getting pop up advertisements (even when you’re not online!). Computer viruses make money by showing you ads for products that may not always be kid-friendly! If this is a problem for you, bring your computer in and we’ll get you back to “safe-searching”.
Internet Redirects – Did you try to go to Google, but somehow ended up on a page advertising Hair Loss Prevention? If so, you probably have a virus that’s redirecting your internet searches. It can be hard to get anything done if you’re never landing on the page you searched for! No worries though, we can help!
