What’s a Virus?

A virus is simply a small program that copies itself and spreads itself through a variety of ways over the internet, email or files sent to you from an infected PC. Virus is a catch all term to refer to a number of malicious infections which include spyware, adware, Trojans, phishing, malware, worms, etc.

All these infections cause different levels of damage to a computer ranging from nuisance pop-ups to theft of personal information or severe damage to the operating system and data content.

Be Aware of Phony Scans

The most common scam is a pop-up shows up on your computer posing as a trusted source (like Microsoft) informing the user they have an infection and to call them for removal. They typically want to remotely access your PC so they can remove the infection but this is the worst thing you can possibly do. You just gave them a backdoor to your data and worse yet if you pay them with a credit card they have that information too. (Cancel your card). No legitimate company will ever contact you in this manner. Call us to remove the infection and the backdoor they can use to access your PC.
