Virus and Malware Removal

Virus and Malware Removal

virusremoval1Removing virus and malware infections can be tricky, and there are some very sophisticated threats that can hide in the nooks and crannies of your computer, so that even after you think they are gone they can resurface. Because of the difficulty in rooting them out and the time it takes to do this, many computer repairers would rather wipe the hard drive and re-install everything rather than try to clean the infection.

While this may be the best solution in some cases, I usually will be able to get rid of the problem. I use a combination of specialist software tools and my own expertise in knowing how viruses and malware work to remove them. This keeps your data and programs, your settings and configuration as is rather than having to set them all up from scratch.

Occasionally, though the time it would take to eliminate the threat will result in a high repair bill as compared to re-installing everything. This is a call that only you can make, and will depend on whether you have the data backed up and all your software installation disks and license keys. But I will help you to make that decision rather than making it for you as can happen with some repairers.

I will also work with you to understand how you may have got infected in the first place, and make sure your computer’s security is set up correctly.
