I have an antivirus installed. Am I safe?

The answer is NO. Simply antivirus isn’t enough as most malware and viruses nowadays are designed to be unnoticed by leading antivirus vendors. Protection and virus removal service is a complicated procedure 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 sort of service isn’t done onsite and requires 60 minutes or more of profound analysis and processes.

After a virus is eliminated at the first stage it does not mean that there are not any left.

Our virus removal company can eliminate it, but generally, this sort of support is done off-site as to remove rootkit completely demands a whole 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 a statement or tracking number), downloading software or games, or just browsing the web.

Malware vs Virus

Knowing the difference between malware and viruses is very important. A virus is just one type of malware, but the term is more widely utilized by the general public. The term malware refers to any malicious applications, including a computer virus.

For example, between 2000 and 2005, spyware and adware emerged as kinds of malware that security systems had to deal with. Malware is infecting computers and mobile devices at an increasingly greater rate. What’s a Malware?

Malware is software written specifically to harm and infect the host system. Malware includes viruses in addition to other kinds of applications such as trojan horses, worms, spyware, and adware.

Virus

As discussed, a Virus is a particular type of malware by itself. It is a contagious part of code that infects another software on the server system and spreads itself once it’s run. It is chiefly known to spread when the software is shared between computers. This acts more like a parasite.

Adware

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 published on the display presented to the consumer at the time of installation. Adware is programmed to analyze which Internet sites, the user visits regularly and to present and feature-related advertisements.

Not spyware has malicious intent, but it becomes a problem anyway because it hurts computer functionality and can be bothersome.

Spyware

This type of malicious software, spies on you, tracks your internet actions. It enables 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 tricky to detect.

Some spyware like keyloggers could be set up intentionally in an organization to track the activities of employees.

Worms

This sort of malware will replicate itself and destroys information and files saved on the server PC. It works to eat up all of the system operating files and data files on a drive.

Trojan

Trojans are a type of virus that’s designed to make a user think they’re a safe program and run them. They might be programmed to steal personal and financial information, and later take over the resources of the host computer’s system files.

In large systems, it may attempt to earn a host system or network resource unavailable to those attempting to reach it. Example: your small business network becoming unavailable.

Ransomware

Ransomware is an advanced sort of malware that limits access to the computer system until the user pays a fee. Your screen might show a pop-up warning you’ve been locked out of your computer and you could access only after paying the cybercriminal.

The cybercriminal demands a ransom to be paid for the restriction to be removed. The infamous Cryptolocker is one kind of ransomware. It’s very difficult to live without computers or mobile devices and we have come to rely on them for many activities — communication, online purchases, and payments, etc.. ,
