Virus Removal

Virus Removal

The number of computer viruses are increasing every year.

If your computer is running slow, displaying popup ads or just acting strangely, you probably have some form of spyware or malware.
Simply installing an anti virus program after the fact will not fix the problem because computer virus, spyware or malware will prevent antivirus programs from removing it.

We use specially developed special utilities to remove the infestation and get your computer running smoothly. With our special utilities we can often remove spyware or malware without needing to perform a fresh installation of windows.
This saves you from reinstalling all your applications.

Once the spyware or malware is removed and your computer is repaired we install anti-spyware malware software to protect your computer from future infection.
How was I infected with a computer virus Computer Virus, Spyware or Malware can come from many sources including malicious banner ads, spam, infected websites, or “free” applications.
Lately we have noticed a rise in fraudulent Anti Virus programs such as XP Anti virus 2008/2009, MS Anti virus, and AntiSpyware 2008.

These fake anti virus programs are frequently downloaded from ad banners claiming to remove nonexistent malware from your computer. Once downloaded it will often hijack the computer and force the user to enter their credit card information.
Computer Virus Spyware & Malware Removal Most computer virus, spyware or malware programs are designed to be hard to remove.
Spyware and Malware often embeds itself in windows, hiding its files or modifying system files with its own code.
This makes it very hard for the average user to remove; special utilities are often required which can unmask the virus allowing for its deletion.

Many companies prefer to wipe your computer then remove the infestation, we see it differently. Through years of experience we can remove the infestation without destroying your data.Your data is important; wiping your computer’s hard drive is always a last resort
