Anti-virus solutions and malware removal
You may have a virus, spyware or malware on your computer or laptop if you are experiencing any of the following problems:
- your device is operating slower than normal
- weird programs pop up all the time
- the computer takes an excessively long time to start up
- you can’t browse the internet
Although portrayed as one of the worst things that could happen to your computer, the computer virus, malware, adware, spyware or any other type of software that isn’t exactly the best for your experience is a relatively common thing. In fact, in a single week, we will see multiple computers come through our Geelong workshop with malicious software issues.
What causes viruses?
The majority of the time, users accidentally click on items they shouldn’t have whilst browse the web. Although this appears to be the primary reason people get viruses or malware on their computer, it’s not the only reason.
Further to the above, the reason for your virus infection may be due to not having the latest anti-virus protection installed on your computer. If you’re unsure if you have the latest anti-virus protection or if your anti-virus protection is working right, get in contact, and we can install, update and verify your anti-virus protection.
