Basic Protection Steps

However, we are often called in after the event  –

With new viruses and internet scams emerging every day, unsuspecting individuals and their data are at risk. Many of these attacks are disguised in emails, on websites that you may visit, or masked in suspicious links. The most vicious viruses will attempt to access personal or business information. Whether the virus is harmful or just annoying, it still needs to be identified and removed from your computer.

Should you experience a cyber-attack – symptoms such as slow start up, blue screens, pop up messages, or cyber ransom demands – then make an appointment with your local Computer Troubleshppter to inspect your hardware (computer or laptop) and determine the best course of action for remediation. Often this may mean we need to take the equipment back to our workshop for a complete systems check, or worst-case full re-install.

  • Removal of viruses and spyware
  • Computer Tune Ups to improve performance of slow computers due to malware & virus attacks
