Does your computer have a virus infection? Don’t feel bad, it seems to happen to everyone eventually. You may have opened an infected email or perhaps browsed to an infected web site. There are many ways for your computer to become infected.
Malware is simply an umbrella term for all types of software that steal data or cause unwanted changes or damage your Windows 10 computer.
There are usually some common indicators that your PC is in need of computer virus removal:
The annoying pop-up or other unexpected onscreen ads are a typical sign of a computer virus infection. Not only are they annoying, other malware might lurk inside Windows 10 poised to cause more mayhem.
Your web browser becomes sluggish and your home page has changed or your browser is redirected to websites you did not intend to go to are warnings of a malicious computer malware infection.
If programs open and close on their own, or your computer freezes, locks up or shuts down for no apparent reason then computer virus is needed.
It is common for Windows 10 to occasionally start up slow because of an update, but if your PC is taking longer than usual to start up or if programs are taking too long to open, then your computer might need a tune-up or a virus removal.
Computer background activity is a lesser recognized red flag because it is normal for computers to perform tasks in the background. However, receiving messages about a lack of hard drive space or hearing your hard drive making thrashing sounds even though you’re not using your computer could mean the malware has taken control of your computer. Another similar problem is when the internet activity light on your computer is is very active even when you are not using it, a virus may be busy sending your private information across the web.
If you experience any of these issues, please contact Structured Technology Services for an expert diagnosis and computer virus removal.
We say “virus” because it is the most recognized term for the problem. What we actually mean is “malware”.
Malware is an umbrella term for any criminal software designed to steal data, cause damage, and problems on computer operating systems like Microsoft Windows.
The term malware is a contraction of the words malicious and software. Malware is spyware, viruses, Trojans, worms, and ransomware among the many other different kinds of malware.
Malware can be bought on the Dark Web just like buying any other software program. It has scripting abilities that allow the buyer to easily modify the program to target whatever or whoever they want. Malware is most often created by teams of criminal hackers for the purpose of stealing money.
There can be other reasons for creating malware such as tools for testing security, leverage for protesters or even as weapons of a cyber-war.
No matter how or why malware appears, it’s always bad news when it infects your PC. Fortunately, that’s what we’re here to help with!
