Is your device infected with a virus?
Viruses and spyware can cause all kinds of performance problems for computers. Is your desktop running slowly? Have a laptop constantly plagued by error messages? What about friends complaining about emails they received from you which you never sent?
These are all symptoms of viruses and spyware and could indicate your computer has “caught” one or more of either. Early detection and removal of malicious software is critical.
The sooner they’re removed, the greater the likelihood you’ll avoid permanent damage to your files or even data loss (including personal information). It’s a tricky process but fortunately, we’re experts! Here’s what we’ll do to make sure your device is secure.

Perform critical operating system updates
If your computer is infected, it may not properly download and install critical operating system updates as it usually would. Your technician will perform any necessary updates that it’s missed out on so it’s up to date and running efficiently.

Your operating system will then be thoroughly tested to guarantee proper functionality. This is an important step in the process that ensures everything is running as intended. Our expert security technicians will take note of any issues at this stage and ensure they’re sorted out.
Install or update internet security software
