Gold Coast Computer Virus Removal
If you notice any of the following symptoms on your PC you could be infected:
- Pop ups while browsing
- Google or other search engines redirect you
- Fake anti-virus program tells you you must purchase software to remove the viruses
- Fake Windows messages informing you that your hard drive has errors and you should purchase their software to fix the errors
- Your computer has slowed down significantly in a short period of time
Anytime you’re connected to the internet, virus protection and a healthy PC are essential. As computer and IT consultants we have personally witnessed the often expensive effects of viruses:
- credit card fraud
- email theft and fraud (such as using for spam, sometimes leading to the user’s email being blacklisted)
- loss of files such as work documents, emails and pictures
- loss of productivity from inoperable PCs
It’s hard to stress too much the importance of getting good solid virus protection for your computer. If you have any questions on protecting yourself from viruses please read my computer virus protection guide first. That guide should give a reasonably savvy home user enough information to get themselves protected from computer viruses. Do remember that no software program will stop all viruses. If something looks unsafe or dodgy, don’t download it. Sometimes even your anti-virus won’t be able to stop a virus if you’ve download it yourself. Always make sure you have the latest version of your browser as this will ensure it has the best detection of dangerous sites that may viruses.
