Virus Removal Service

Laptop infected with a virus

By some counts, as many as 50,000 new viruses and other malware are released daily. Chances are everyone who uses the internet will encounter a virus at some point requiring help from a virus removal service. While some high risk activities like piracy, pornography, and online gambling certainly increase your chances of getting infected, they are not the only ways for you to catch a bug. Just having a vulnerable computer and visiting an infected website is enough. Unfortunately, even professionally managed websites from major brands are not immune.

One of the major downsides to modern malware (a blanket term meaning malicious software that includes viruses, worms, trojans, spyware, adware, etc.) is that once it finds it’s way on to a computer, it likes to invite all it’s friends to the party. As you can probably guess, viruses are not the best houseguests, and love to make a huge mess. For this reason, we always run a full tune-up and OS repair alongside our virus removal service. Just kicking out the bad guys is only half the job. Someone still needs to clean up after them. Then we make sure your operating system and all your software is up to date in order to protect you in the future.

We’ve found that often people blame viruses for problems that may or may not be related. If you think you’re infected, but aren’t sure, stop in for a Free* Diagnostic and our techs will be happy to help.


Tips to Avoid Needing Virus Removal Service

  • Keep your operating system and applications up to date.
  • Install a trusted Anti-Virus and Anti-Malware program
  • Avoid high risk activities such as piracy, pornography, and online gambling
  • Install an ad-blocker for your web browser. We recommend Adblock Plus.
  • Never give remote access to someone you don’t trust. Watch out for pop-ups and calls from people claiming to be from Microsoft.
