Malware, as the name suggests, is nothing but bad news for your computer. It’s designed to be tricky and deceptive, and can be almost impossible for the average user to remove. Malware often embeds itself in windows, hiding its files or modifying system files with its own code. Special utilities are often required to unmask the virus and successfully remove it from your software. At Computer Repair Plus, we have years of experience removing malware without destroying data or harming the integrity of the underlying software code.
If you’ve noticed your computer is running slowly, bombarding you with popup ads or just acting strangely, there’s a good chance your computer has a virus or some form of malware corrupting its normal operations. Unfortunately, installing an antivirus program after you notice a problem will not fix the problem itself, because malware prevents antivirus programs from removing it. In other words, by the time you notice a problem, it’s already too late.
We use specially developed in-house tools and processes to remove the embedded malware code and get your computer back up and running smoothly. With our in-house utilities we can often remove malware without needing to perform a fresh installation of your operating system. This saves you from reinstalling all your applications. Once the malware is removed and your computer is repaired, we install anti-malware software to protect your computer from future infection.
Malware can come from any number of seemingly harmless sources, including malicious banner ads, spam, infected websites, or “free” applications. Lately, we’ve noticed a rise in fraudulent Anti Virus programs such as Vista Antivirus 2019/20, MS Antivirus, and AntiSpyware 2020. These fake antivirus programs are frequently downloaded from ad banners claiming to remove nonexistent malware from your computer. Once downloaded, they will often hijack the computer and force the user to enter their credit card information to regain access to their own files.
