Viruses, Malware, and Ransomware

Computer viruses have been around for as long as there have been personal computer networks to proliferate them. There have been many stories regarding the origins of viruses, but ultimately, they can come from anywhere and can be written by anyone with a moderate understanding of computer programming. With this ever-lurking threat, it is important to be aware of the different forms a virus can take.

Whenever we look at an unprotected system, it is not uncommon for us to detect many Potentially Unwanted Programs (PUPs). These are programs that come in with a supposed wanted function such as automatic driver updates or other performance enhancers. However, we have yet to see one of these programs that is actually valuable. They usually come along as extra applications that download themselves in the background when another intended program is installed. It may not seem like a big deal, but these PUPs slow down your computer significantly and can affect the functionality of your system.

Whether you are dealing with viruses, worms, trojans, adware, malware, spyware, or any of the many other nuisances out there, we can help you put together a plan to protect yourself and prevent infection. Our Remote Monitoring and Maintenance system handles these and many other issues.
