What is a computer virus?

Virus removal

 

Computer viruses are malicious software programs (or malware) spreading themselves through the Internet, from computer to computer or other removable media such as discs and portable hard drives. They are designed to interfere with computer operation by deliberately corrupting or deleting data, causing problems, compromising private data or slowing systems down.

Is my Computer infected?

 

You may have a virus infection if your computer is behaving strangely or starts displaying some of the following symptoms:

 

  • Running slower
  • Blocked or slow internet access
  • Unresponsive programs that won’t start
  • Pop-up windows or messages from Anti-virus software that you have never installed telling you that your PC is infected.

 

How can we help?

 

We will inspect your system for viruses free of charge at your home or office, if a threat is found we will take your computer to our workshop to be disinfected and then return it normally within 48 hours.

If we need to re-install your operating system (Windows or Mac) we will fully backup your personal data and after re-installation configure all the software updates and complete a full virus scan, ensuring we return your data completely and safely.

When we return your computer we’ll set it back up for you and spend time giving you free advice on how to protect your system with anti-virus software and, if required we can provide them to you at reasonable and competitive prices.
