It’s turned into a never-ending job to be vigilant against Spyware, Malware, Viruses and all of the other “bad guy” softwares. If you think you have an infection, you should disconnect your computer from the internet immediately or just turn it off. This keeps the infection from getting worse. Then, give us a call as soon as you can. Infections can get worse very quickly, but can be easy to remove if you get to them before they have had a chance to dig into your computer. Get in touch with us – we can help. These infections can make your computer run very slowly, prevent your computer from even booting, make browsing the internet almost impossible, hide or delete your data, or even extort money from you! Worse, they seem to get more clever at sneaking in around your antivirus software every day.
Don’t let the threat of viruses stop you from using your computer, but you should definitely keep your antivirus and anti-malware softwares up to date and running. You should also know how to run a manual scan with each one. Practice today so you are ready. Be sure to call us if you think your computer is infected!
