A computer virus, much like a flu virus, is designed to spread from host to host and has the ability to replicate itself. Similarly, in the same way that viruses cannot reproduce without a host cell, computer viruses cannot reproduce and spread without programming such as a file or document. As you can see, just like a vicious flu virus, a computer virus is something that you want to avoid
Virus protection software has been designed to prevent viruses, Trojan horses and worms from getting onto a computer and also to remove any malicious software code that has already infected a computer. Most virus protection utilities bundle anti-malware and anti-spyware capabilities to go along with anti-virus protection. Internet security suites go one step further by including additional capabilities like anti-phishing, firewall, anti-spam, PC optimization, and file protection.
Sometimes, prevention just doesn't work. New viruses are released everyday. When your prevention software fails, we can step in and most of the time, remove the virus without losing any files. This can be a very complex job and can take hours to remove. Using our company, we cap at $100 for labour, so there will be no bill shock.
We offer an anti-virus suite if you don't have one, priced at a cheap $30. Otherwise, our current recommended free anti-virus is Avira which did very well this year compared to others.
