Virus, Spyware and Malware Removal
Although you may have anti-virus software installed on your computer your system can still get infected from P2P networks (peer-to-peer) and other software sharing programs for files including music and video. Services like Morpheus, Kazaa, Ares and others allow files to be downloaded (usually illegally) and these files bypass Norton and McAfee. And once one computer is infected it is entirely possible that all of the computers on your network will be infected.
Doctor Computer is well versed in remediating all forms of computer viruses, spyware and malware to get your computers back up and running.
- Virus Programming code that was designed to do something counterproductive and/or destructive. A virus can replicate itself but it can also display messages, install other software or files, delete software of files, etc. Typically viruses spread by attaching themselves to programs and files.
- Spyware applications are typically bundled as a hidden component of freeware or shareware programs that can be downloaded from the Internet. Once installed, the spyware monitors user activity on the Internet and transmits that information in the background to someone else. Spyware can also gather information about e-mail addresses and even passwords and credit card numbers. Also called adware.
- Malware is a category of malicious code that includes viruses, worms, and Trojan horses. Destructive malware will utilize popular communication tools to spread, including worms sent through email and instant messages, Trojan horses dropped from web sites, and virus-infected files downloaded from peer-to-peer connections.
