Computer viruses and spyware seem to be unavoidable, but as they can cripple your computer, removing these unwanted pests need to be done quickly in order to cause the least amount of damage. Sometimes your computer is running slow and you don’t even realize it’s a computer virus that is causing it.
Individual home computers are just as susceptible to computer viruses and spyware as larger computer networks. They may hide themselves in Word documents, Excel files and many other types of documents and files, in addition to Internet sites. When these files are opened, a virus spreads quickly throughout your computer, infecting everything it contacts. Some malware also include spyware – programs that take over your interaction with the computer for commercial gain. Not only does it interrupt the computer’s functionality, but it can also steal financial information, passwords, monitor your web browsing activity or route HTTP requests to advertising sites. Without professional help, you could be left with the high cost of service interruptions, lost data and a threatened reputation with your friends, family or customers.
