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 major antivirus vendors. Protection and virus removal service is a complicated procedure and requires good skills to be done properly.

How long is it takes to remove a virus completely?

It depends upon the depth of infection along with your computer speed. Usually, this type of service is not done onsite and requires 60 minutes or more of deep analysis and procedures.

I’ve eliminated the virus and my computer works properly now. Have I done a good job?

After a virus is eliminated in the first stage it does not mean that there are no left. It is highly recommended to scan your system using several tools and also protect from any further threads. Your computer may seem fine but after a while, it might get infected even worst when virus hasn’t been eliminated completely or when there is no good protection applied.

Our aim at Dr IT Services – Computer Repair isn’t just to remove the virus completely but also protect your system against other threats.

My computer acts erratically but antivirus didn’t detect any viruses. What should I do?

Ideally, you should shut down your computer to prevent any data loss and call me as soon as possible. It looks like you have a rootkit that’s extremely hard to detect and remove. Our virus removal company is able to eliminate it, but usually, this type of support is performed off-site as to remove rootkit completely demands a lot of time of investigation.

How can I get infected by a computer virus?

Viruses are everywhere. You might get infected by opening suspicious email attachment (usually with a statement or tracking number), downloading software or games, or just 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.

By way of instance, between 2000 and 2005, spyware and adware emerged as types of malware that protection 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 specific type of malware by itself. It’s a contagious piece of code that infects another applications on the server system and spreads itself once it is run. It is mostly known to spread when the software is shared between computers. This acts more like a parasite.

Adware

Adware is also known as advertising-supported software. It’s software which renders advertisements for the purpose of generating revenue for its writer. The advertisements are published on the screen presented to the user at the time of installation. Adware is programmed to examine which Internet websites, the consumer visits regularly and to present and feature-related advertisements.

Not all adware has malicious intent, but it will become a problem anyway because it harms computer functionality and can be bothersome.

Spyware

This sort of malicious software, spies on you, tracks your online actions. It enables the hacker in collecting information about the victim’s system, without the consent of the victim. This spyware’s presence is typically hidden from the server and it’s quite tricky to detect.

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

Worms

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

Trojan

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

In large systems, it might attempt to make a host system or network resource inaccessible 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 may show a pop-up warning that you have been locked out of your computer and that you can access only after paying the cybercriminal.

The cybercriminal demands a ransom to be paid for the restriction to be removed. The infamous Cryptolocker is 1 type of ransomware. It is quite tough to live without computers or mobile devices and we’ve come to depend on them for many tasks — communication, online purchases, and payments, etc.. ,
