When virus and spyware issues occur, you can rely on the technicians at Alltech Computers to deliver prompt, expert computer service. Malware (short for malicious software) is software designed to infiltrate or damage a computer without your consent. Malware includes computer viruses, worms, trojan horses, spyware, scareware and more. It can be present on websites and emails, or hidden in downloadable files, photos, videos, freeware or shareware.
Virus and Spyware Removal
Just like a cold virus can spread rapidly like a wildfire, computer viruses spread rapidly within a home or business network. The best solution to minimize downtime and potential security risks is to try to keep viruses out of your network in the first place, by having a good Anti Virus software. Some simple policies can help with this, such as not opening any attachments in emails unless the user knows exactly what it is, and not downloading any programs from the internet. With extensive experience with virus infections, Alltech Computers technicians can help you create an internet policy that will significantly reduce the risk of viruses.
Unfortunately, that usually isn’t enough to keep your systems virus and spyware free. Safe browsing habits can help cut down on the number of viruses that find their way onto your network, but if you are serious about keeping your computers in good condition the best way to avoid getting infected is to run a good anti-virus protection program, do periodic scans for spyware, avoid clicking on suspicious email links or websites. But scammers are sneaky: sometimes malware is cleverly disguised as an email from a friend, or a useful website.
If your best efforts have failed or your network got infected before you had a chance to implement anti virus measures, Alltech Computers is here to help. Removing viruses can be a very tricky task, and one wrong move could mean the computer or worse the entire network is re-infected the next time you reboot. Alltech Computers technicians are available to resolve your virus and spyware problems as quickly as possible so that you can get back to work.
Whether you want to improve your computer’s performance, get those annoying pop-ups out of the way, install a wireless network, or just learn how to use your computer more effectively, Alltech Computers can help!
