Computer Virus



A computer virus infection is a serious problem which can lead to identity theft if left unchecked. 
If you suspect you have a virus on your computer, please give us a call to speak with one of our expert technicians about how to keep safe.




A computer virus is a piece of software that can 'infect' a computer, install itself and copy itself to other computers, without the users knowledge or permission. It usually attaches itself to other computer programs, data files, or the boot sector of a Hard drive.


Malware is short for malicious software. Malware is the name that is given to any type of software that could harm a computer system, interfere with and gather a user's data, or make the computer perform actions without the owner's knowledge or permission.


A type of malware that uses malicious code to install software that seems ok, but is hidden to create back doors into a system. This typically causes loss or theft of data from an external source.


Unlike a virus, a worm, is a standalone piece of malicious software that replicates itself in order to spread to other computers. It often uses a computer network to spread itself, relying on security flaws on the target system to allow access.


Spyware is software that aids in gathering information about a person or organization without their knowledge. Spyware can monitor and log the activity that is performed on a target system, like log key strokes, or gather credit card and other information.


Adware is software which can automatically cause pop-up and banner adverts to be displayed in order to generate revenue for its author or publisher. A lot of freeware uses Adware but not always in a malicious way. If it was malicious, it would then be classed as spyware or malware.


If you notice you have a computer virus or are unsure, the best thing to do is to turn the computer off as soon as possible. While your computer is on and/or connected to the internet, the virus is always working in the background either infecting more files or sending data across the internet. If your computer is shut down shortly after receiving a virus, the computer repair process for getting rid of the virus is much easier. The longer the virus has to damage your system, the more time we have to spend getting everything back to normal.
