The most common problem
Do you need Virus Removal? (We know, even the best security software isn’t perfect.)
Most of our service calls are directly related to malicious software. So that’s what we do – virus removal, spyware removal, malware, adware, and their relatives.
How can you tell if your computer has been infected? Here are some of the symptoms:
- Your computer suddenly runs very slowly
- You get lots of pop-ups
- Your computer won’t turn on or turn off
- You have new software on your computer you didn’t install
- Your computer crashes repeatedly
If you see any of these symptoms, call us as soon as possible so we can assess the illness.
Yes, that goes for Mac computers, too. OS X is not immune to viruses.
Viruses can lead to many bigger problems. Your personal data can be stolen, your hard drive erased and your computer used for illegal activities. Your hard drive can even be encrypted remotely, which requires you to pay a fee or ransom to have it unlocked (known as ransomware).
Don’t delay, call Geek for Hire today.
Many customers ask us about the best antivirus software. After much research, we recommend NOD32 from ESET. While no security software can guarantee that it will find and remove all viruses, NOD32 catches the majority. NOD32 protects your Mac’s and your PC’s. We think it’s best.
After you click on the link, you have the option to purchase either the antivirus by itself or NOD’s Smart Security. In our experience, the Antivirus is sufficient for most people. Remember to check out the discounts available for multiple Devices and additional years!
