Don’t stand for viruses and malware running amok on your system. Not only can they slow your PC or laptop to a halt, but also pose a serious security risk to your data and privacy! At Fresh PCs we are competent enough to identify threats based on behaviour and prior experience – but we are also constantly keeping up to date with the latest threats to best understand how to control, remove and protect against them.
Two scenarios may exist where proper experience and care is not exercised:
- The infected system may be unnecessarily “wiped” in order to remove the virus. Unfortunately this often means all data is wiped, an illegal copy of Windows may be used to reinstall (often containing hidden viruses and needlessly illegal), along leaving the freshly installed operating system unusable (lack of drivers, applications and user data).
- The virus may appear to be removed, but in reality others may exist, it may be hidden as a “rootkit” or posed to strike again once returned to the customer.
