Auckland Virus Removal Solutions
We frequently have customers bring their Computers & Laptops in to us and ask us why is it running so slow? Or why can’t I run these programs anymore that used to work fine? The most common answer is generally that you have managed to pick up a Computer Virus. As technology advances so are the lengths people will go to manipulate users into thinking something is absolutely safe and harmless for their Computer when in fact it is malicious.
There is alot of advertising for “free” Virus Scanners and other programs that promise will clean your Computer right up for you, however we find a lot of the time these are the very applications that have caused the initial problem. Because of this we recommend our Customers to Contact Us before attempting to install any software to remedy the situation themselves.
By taking the risk of trying different “free” Anti-Virus software online you are increasing the likelihood of doing more potentially irreversible damage to your precious data such as photos, videos and documents. When our customers let us know they suspect they have a virus we try to book in a time straight away for one of the team to come out and asses the situation or have them bring the device into our Henderson based Workshop.
Here are some of the examples of things that happen which are could be Virus related;
• Very Slow Load & Shutdown times
• Unable to Access certain Files
• Strange New Error Messages
• Computer Crashing or Unplanned Restarts
• Blue Screen Of Death
• Pop Up Ads while Browsing Internet
How Can I Stop These Viruses?
If you find that the above applies to you and you think you have potentially become victim to a virus we recommend you to switch off your Computer and Contact Us as soon as possible.
Once we have managed to remove the virus and verify that all that precious Data is still okay we will then work with you to get one of our recommended Anti-Virus solutions installed. We know that not everyone has a budget that allows for these things so whilst we do recommend a particular paid version of an Anti-Virus, if that doesn’t suit your needs we are happy to come on-site to support you with one of our Free (but not as good) recommended versions of an Anti-Virus software.
If you are still not 100% sure if its a Virus or other type of Malware (Malicious Software) you have been infected with, give us a call and we will get you to list the symptoms you are experiencing to us and be able to give you our best recommended advice.
