Computer viruses and malware are becoming far more prevalent than ever before. Unfortunately, your firewall or computer security software may not protect you from every possible threat. The Tech Helpdesk is highly trained in virus and malware removal and is always ready to help clean up your computer of unwanted software, restoring it to its original working condition so that you can get on with your life.

Types of Computer Viruses

Viruses come in many forms. Some are merely annoying, and some are of severe malicious intent, meant to rob you of your personal information, passwords, identity, and finances. If your computer has been affected by any of these potential threats, you need to address the issue before it gets out of hand and causes too much damage.

FACT: You are 7 times more likely to get infected if you don’t have virus protection.

Malicious software, Trojan horses, viruses, adware, and spyware can enter your local network through many gateways, including:

  • Inadvertently downloading from a seemingly harmless e-mail or site
  • As an add-on to an installed software update
  • Visiting sites that are only meant to steal your personal information or data

Some tips to avoid malware and viruses include:

  • Only download software and updates from sites you trust
  • Do not click on links in emails that look odd or suspicious, even if they are coming from ‘friends’. Your friend’s computer could have been compromised!
  • Always read the terms and conditions before downloading new software
  • If an email looks suspicious, even if you think it is coming from a trusted source, investigate fully and completely before responding
  • Check snopes.com often for an updated list of common computer virus scams
  • Limit the number of users who can access your computer
  • Password-protect all downloads to prevent unwanted software installations
  • Be wary of sites offering free stuff in exchange for your personal information
  • Ensure that when purchasing goods from the internet that you are on a secure connection (check the URL address at the top of your browser window: it should start with ‘https’)

Here are a few symptoms that might help you determine if your computer is infected by a virus:

  • Pages you navigate to in your browser will redirect to other pages (adware)
  • No matter what you do, your computer, mouse or keyboard will not respond
  • Crashing for no reason, or self-restarting
  • Files missing, or extra/duplicate files suddenly appear
  • Applications not responding as they should
  • Unusual error messages
  • Incessant pop-ups
  • Discs or drives are inaccessible
