"My computer is running very slow."
"What are these programs that come up all the time?"
"The computer has been taking much longer to start up."
"I can’t browse the internet…"
If any of the above sounds like a problem that you are experiencing, then you may well have a virus or malware on your computer.
Although portrayed as one of the worst things that could happen to your computer, the ‘computer virus’, malware, adware or any other type of software that isn’t exactly the best for your experience is a relatively common thing. In fact, in a single week, we will see multiple computers come through our workshop with issues relating to malicious software.
What causes viruses and the like? To be perfectly honest, the bulk of the time, it is the user clicking on items they shouldn’t have whilst browsing the web. Although this appears to be the primary reason people get viruses on their computer, it’s not the only reason.
Further to the above, the reason for your infection may be not having the latest anti-virus protection installed on your computer. If you’re unsure for any reason if you have the latest protection, get in contact and we can install, update and verify your protection. We use and recommend ESET Smart Security for all users around Geelong, this is something that we have in store and can have it protecting your computer too!
So if you’re infected, you're more than welcome to drop by and we’ll sort your computer out!
