Spyware, Malware, Trojans...
Did you know that something can be downloaded to your PC by you (or one of the family), opening up a 'back door', exposing your personal information, photos, credit card or banking details and more to criminals just by visiting a 'bad' web site?
Some of those web sites seem harmless; they offer FREE stuff like desktop wallpaper and programs that seem really useful or fun. A lot of them target children.

Did you know that your computer and Internet connection could be sending 'spam' (junk email) messages to thousands of people around the globe without your knowledge?

Some 'malware' is just annoying or embarrassing when it keeps popping up advertisements or redirecting you to 'adult' web sites but some can be downright dangerous!

Getting Clean
Removal of most trojans and malware is possible with a reputable Anti-Virus / Anti-Spyware application* but some variants are quite difficult to detect and remove and thus require manual cleaning techniques. We have very high success rates for removing rootkits and self-replicating malware variants. When you've had enough - just give us a call! 

 

* In our experience, we've not found an AntiSpyware program that will detect and remove ALL traces of ALL malware. That's why we take a multi-layered approach to cleaning a system successfully; using several different software packages and techniques to achieve our goal.

For these reasons, we don't try to clean an infected PC 'on-site' or charge by the hour for virus & spyware problems.
Considering that one scan may take an hour or more depending on the number of files in the system, we could be at your house for a very long time!

Sometimes if a computer is heavily infected and too many critical Windows files are damaged, the only practical way forward is to format the system and reinstall Windows. In these cases we will endeavour to backup any user profiles and data before taking this drastic step. 
 
 

PC Repair
In addition to offering hardware diagnostics, repair and component replacement services to both private individuals and businesses we can also help with:

  • Windows errors, corruption and other software problems
  • Virus / Spyware removal and prevention
  • Retrieving your files from Windows User Accounts where the password has been lost or forgotten
  • Basic data-recovery from Hard-Disk Drives, Floppy Disks, CD/DVD's, and USB Pen Drives, with access to high-level data-recovery specialists.
  • 'Cloning' data from one hard-drive to another - definitely the best way to replace or upgrade your hard disk without reinstalling Windows, drivers, updates and all your programs!
  • Capacitor replacement on motherboards with faulty (leaking) capacitors where practical.
  • Laptop repairs including DC Power Sockets, Screen Backlights etc.
