Computer Virus Removal


If You Think You Might Have a Computer Virus, You Probably Do.

 

Computer viruses are everywhere. Technically they might not actually be viruses per se, but for the purpose of this post we’ll refer to any malicious computer program as a virus. They might more accurately be called malware, worms, trojans, keyloggers, or spyware, but the result is the same, your computer not functioning as desired. This might be a simple inconvenience like the computer running slowly, or pop up ads, or it might lead to something more troublesome like the computer not running at all, loss of data, or important information falling into the wrong hands.
