Virus Removal NYC, Malware Removal, Adware Removal
Computer viruses are small software programs that are designed to spread from one computer to another and to interfere with computer operation. Computer viruses are often spread by attachments in email messages or instant messaging messages. That is why it is essential that you never open email attachments unless you know who it’s from and you are expecting it. Computer viruses also spread through downloads on the Internet.

The most common types of computer viruses:
- Fake Antivirus Software – Rogue security software designers create legitimate looking pop-up windows that advertise security update software. These windows might appear on your screen while you surf the web. The “updates” or “alerts” in the pop-up windows call for you to take some sort of action, such as clicking to install the software, accept recommended updates, or remove unwanted viruses or spyware. When you click, the rogue security software downloads to your computer. Rogue security software might also appear in the list of search results when you are searching for trustworthy antispyware software, so it is important to protect your computer.
Pop Up Advertising – You’ll know you have a computer virus if you’re always getting pop up advertisements (even when you’re not online!). Computer viruses make money by showing you ads for products that may not always be kid-friendly! If this is a problem for you, bring your computer in and we’ll get you back to “safe-searching”.
- Internet Redirects – Did you try to go to Google, but somehow ended up on a page advertising a random product? If so, you probably have a virus that’s redirecting your internet searches. It can be hard to get anything done if you’re never landing on the page you searched for! No worries though, we can help!
