Does Your Computer Have a Virus?Is your computer running slowly or not the same as it normally does? Does it ever start up or does it just stop at the startup screen? Don't overlook this as just "a glitch" that you can worry about later because there's usually an underlying factor causing the issues. During these times of uncertainty, you need to be aware of how dangerous the Internet really is. Having a computer, laptop or desktop PC without proper antivirus AND malware protection for even one day could be a disaster. Your entire system could crash and never start again without having to deal with expensive computer repair services, or even worse, Data Recovery Services if necessary. It is often very difficult for a user to know if they are infected. It takes a skilled Computer Virus and Malware Removal Professional to effectively remove Viruses, Malware and Spyware to ultimately restore your computer(s) to normal operating levels, without losing precious data, pictures or email.
Capturing a Virus Early Is CriticalThe reality is that viruses tend to do their damage well before the user even knows it by running in the background and accumulating all of your personal information. Often times the information illegally collected from your computer is sent via your own email to its own "Host". Often times the "Host" is located outside the U.S. so it's much easier to sell your personal information over the Internet. If the Virus, Malware or Spyware has already replicated itself throughout your entire system files and Registry, a Montgomery Texas Computer Repair technician will make a judgment call and if necessary, safely backup all of your data, pictures, emails and any other personal files that you may have to an external hard drive before performing a destructive recovery on your computer. It sounds much worse than it is. This will ensure that all virus and subsequent damage are taken care of before all of your files are cleaned and placed back onto your computer as they were.
Protect Other Computers On Your Local NetworkIf a computer network is involved, including a server, Montgomery Texas Computer Repair will scour the entire system to ensure that all underlying files created by the virus are effectively removed. The computer network and servers will then be reloaded and restored to optimal operating levels only if necessary. Montgomery Texas Computer Repair will NOT perform unnecessary work that is not needed, ever.
Be Aware of the Most Common Cyber ThreatsUnfortunately, the Internet world is loaded with all kinds of Viruses and Malware. As we previously mentioned, some of them are designed to steal your valuable personal information while others were created to do damage to your computers.
