I have an antivirus installed. Am I safe?
The answer is NO. Simply antivirus is not enough as most viruses and malware nowadays are made to be unnoticed by leading antivirus vendors. Protection and virus removal service is a complex process and requires great skills to be done properly.
How long is it takes to remove a virus completely?
It depends on the thickness of infection along with your computer speed. Usually, this type of service isn’t done onsite and requires 60 minutes or more of deep analysis and procedures.

After a virus is removed at the first stage it doesn’t mean that there are not any left. It’s highly recommended to deeply scan your system using several tools and also protect from any additional threads.

Our virus removal company can eliminate it, but generally, this sort of support is done off-site as to remove rootkit completely demands a lot of time of investigation.
How did I get infected by a computer virus?
Viruses are everywhere. You may get infected by opening suspicious email attachment (usually with an invoice or tracking number), downloading software or games, or simply browsing the internet.
Malware vs Virus
Understanding the difference between viruses and malware is very important. A virus is just one kind of malware, however, the term is more widely used by the general public. The term malware refers to any malicious software, including a computer virus.
For instance, between 2000 and 2005, spyware and adware emerged as types of malware that protection systems needed to deal with. Malware is infecting computers and mobile devices at an increasingly greater pace. What is a Malware?
Malware is software written specifically to harm and infect the host system. Malware includes viruses along with other types of applications such as trojan horses, worms, spyware, and adware.
As discussed, a Virus is a particular type of malware alone. It’s a contagious part of code that infects another applications on the server system and spreads itself after it is run. It is mostly known to disperse when the software is shared between computers. This acts more like a parasite.
Adware is also referred to as advertising-supported software. It is software which renders advertisements for the purpose of generating revenue for its author. The advertisements are printed on the display presented to the consumer at the time of installation. Adware is programmed to examine which Internet websites, the user visits frequently and to present and feature-related advertisements.
Not spyware has malicious intent, but it will become a problem anyway because it harms computer performance and can be annoying.
This sort of malicious software, spies on you, tracks your online activities. It helps the hacker in gathering information about the victim’s system, without the consent of the victim. This spyware’s presence is typically hidden from the host and it is very difficult to detect.
Some spyware like keyloggers could be installed intentionally in an organization to track the activities of workers.
This type of malware will replicate itself and destroys files and information saved on the server PC. It works to eat up all of the system operating documents and data files on a drive.
Trojans are a type of virus that’s designed to create a user think they’re a safe program and operate them. They may be programmed to steal personal and financial information, and take over the resources of the host computer’s system files.
In large systems, it may try to make a host system or network resource unavailable to those trying to reach it. Case in point: your small business network becoming unavailable.
Ransomware is an advanced type of malware which restricts access to the computer system until the user pays a fee. Your screen may show a pop-up warning you’ve been locked out of your computer and you could access only after paying the cybercriminal.
The cybercriminal needs a ransom to be paid for the restriction to be removed. The infamous Cryptolocker is one kind of ransomware. It is quite difficult to live without computers or mobile devices and we have come to rely on them for many activities — communicating, online purchases, and payments, etc.. ,
