Computer Virus Removal - Viruses - Spyware- Adware - Worms & Trojans

The first thing most people notice when they have a computer virus is when strange things start to happen, suddenly some files are missing or antivirus programs keep saying they are infected.

What Is A Computer Virus?

Viruses are a type of “malware” this is a term covering all types of “malicious software”. The most common Viruses that people come in contact with are Worms and Trojan Horses.

The people who create viruses are very clever at hiding their bugs mainly to avoid being detected by antivirus software, unfortunately even the best antivirus will not detect all types of infestation. Some of these viruses block your antivirus from accessing the web so it’s unable to update your definitions thus making you unprotected against the latest threats. If you think your computer is infected then update your virus protection straight away and run a full virus scan or if you are unsure seek our professional help.

How Computer Viruses Work?
A virus usually hides inside another program or file and is generally delivered via the internet or email, the most common places people get viruses from are the file sharing networks limewire, edonkey, torrent sites or trying to download pirated music / videos. Most virus problems we get in for repair aren’t what’s known as destructive they are more of an annoyance, or are used to capture information from your computer e.g. bank details / personal information.
