Virus, trojan, spyware, and adware have always been threats to computers regardless how better antivirus software has become.

Sometimes it takes as little as 2 seconds for your computer to be infected by virus.

You may have visited a wrong website, downloaded a wrong piece of software, opened an unexpected email attachment, or maybe your friend has just shared a virus-infected file with you without even knowing that the file carries virus.

Most viruses target Windows computers. Since Apple Mac computers have become much more popular, virus makers have started targeting Mac OS.

Destructive viruses can cause data file corruption, file damage and system failure. Some world famous viruses are known to have crashed millions of computers, or stealing confidential information from users. Trojan horses open certain ports and leave the computer potentially vulnerable to other attacks.

Virus is infectious from one computer to another through exchange of file or email. Spyware, adware tracks user Internet surfing behavior and deliver buyer specific marketing materials.

The most common form of such materials are pop-up advertisements.

Browser hijack is a common symptom of spyware and adware, it takes over your computer Internet browser and sets your homepage to an unfamiliar search page, delivers popup ads randomly, or shows you some “prizes” that you have “won”.

Removing virus, trojan, spyware and adware is usually time-consuming and not an easy job. It’s far beyond knowledge of normal computer users. It may also result in loss of data if not done correctly.

Installing antivirus software after virus has already got into your computer usually will not help. Many viruses are capable of hiding themselves from antivirus programs and even disabling them.

We can remove virus that manufacturers and others cannot

The fact is, manufacturers, including Apple, only fix a limited number of issues on your computers.

The manufacturers will not do the followings:

  • Manual removal of virus and spyware
  • Back up or recover your data.
  • Provide antivirus protection to help protect your computer
  • Help set up your computer or email accounts after removing viruses
  • Work on computers that had been repaired previously by a third-party technician.

Don’t waste your time seeking help from the manufacturers for the above.

It is likely that the manufacturers will simply wipe out your laptop and return it to factory settings.

Unlike the manufacturers, local computer repairers like us will repair what they can, plus the things that they cannot repair for you. Because, it is within our expertise and is our main business to do so (we are not retailers nor manufacturers).

What’s involved in a virus spyware removal process?

Removing virus spyware from a computer involves manually removing injected harmful files from the computer, then reinstalling a clean working Windows or macOS system if necessary.

We will back up and restore your data upon request. However, data loss still may occur. It’s recommended to keep regular backup of your data.

In most cases, wiping out and reinstalling operating system is recommended. If this is not applicable, we will attempt manual virus spyware removal without wiping out the computer. This is however not recommended.

Installing an antivirus, internet security software after that is recommended to help prevent virus spyware getting back to your computer.

My computer has virus, will my antivirus help removing it?

If your computer has already got virus, antivirus software will not help.

Virus spyware needs to be stopped before it gets into your computer. New virus spyware will always find a way to go through antivirus software. It is too late then to use antivirus software to scan your computer and remove them.

Fighting virus is like police fighting criminals. Unfortunately, there will always be criminals.

How long does it take to remove virus spyware from my computer?

Same day or next day!

Assuming that you have backed up your data, removing virus spyware from your computer can be done on the same day or the next day depending on what time you bring in.

If you have not backed up your data and need data backup to be done, this will add up to the turn-around time. The amount of time needed to back up and restore your data varies depending the amount of data that you have.
