With most people being connected to the internet on a near-permanent basis, laptops and PCs are open to the constant threat of malware activity. They can cause significant damage, so professional malware removal is recommended.
Malware is short for ‘malicious software’ and, in essence, it is any piece of software written with the intention of causing harm to a computer or its data.
Viruses: these attach themselves to files on your hard drive, infecting and corrupting them, before spreading to other files.
Trojans: these compromise your PCs security, creating a digital backdoor, making it easier for other malware to infect your device.
Spyware: these lurk in the background, logging your online activity, including surfing habits, credit card details, and site passwords.
Ransomware: a particularly nasty variant, these can freeze your computer, threatening to erase your entire system, unless you pay money to the creator.
Adware: these generate pop-up adverts on your computer which are not only annoying, but can potentially compromise your security.
Creators of malware have all manner of ways to infect your PC. Most likely it was a file sent to you by email, or an internet link to a dodgy site, or even a piece of self-installing code that’s been added to an otherwise legitimate website.
The most common indicator of a malware infection is that your system has slowed down dramatically. If programs are taking longer to open up, or applications are regularly freezing, it could be a sign that you’ve been infected.
