What is a virus?
A computer virus is a type of malicious code or program written to alter the way a computer operates and that is designed to spread from one computer to another. It operates by inserting or attaching itself to a legitimate program or document that supports macros in order to execute its code. They have the potential to cause unexpected or damaging effects, such as harming the system software by corrupting or destroying data.
If your computer does not operate as it should, or if it fails to boot completely, you may have been subject to malware. We are able to help! After taking backups of all data, the malware is identified, stopped from running, and then removed. Once removed, action is taken to prevent further infection from all sources.
We, at SNS, have worked with dozens of software packages to prevent and remove viruses on PC’s, Macs and Mobile Devices. Below is just a short list of some software packages that we recommend.
