Nothing is worse than having your system slow to a crawl with pop-ups all over the place, five minute boot times, and your web browser taking you to weird search results. And, where did all those toolbars come from?!
Infections can be just a nuisance, causing your computer performance to suffer, or your web browsing to sometimes send you places you had not intention of visiting. However, it can also be serious and result in your system being used as a “bot” to send spam emails, or to help criminal organizations attack other web sites, or steal sensitive information from your system to be used for Identity Theft or other bad things.
And, by now, everyone has heard of the dreaded Ransomware that encrypts your documents and pictures and then demands you pay hundreds or thousands of dollars to get them back. Sometimes I can decrypt the files for you and restore them without paying the ransom. Most of the time, however, you better have good backups!
I have taken special classes on virus and malware removal, as well as having nearly 30 years of experience in dealing with infected computers.
Most of the time, I can have your system back to you within 24 hours.
