How can I tell if my computer has a virus?
If you can answer “yes” to any of the following, your computer might have a virus.
Is your computer running very slowly?
A common symptom of a virus is much slower than normal PC speed. However, there can be other reasons for slow speed. These include a hard disk that needs defragmenting, a computer that needs more memory (RAM), or the existence of spyware or adware.
Are you getting unexpected messages, or are programs starting automatically?
Some viruses can cause damage to Windows or some of your programs. The results of this damage might include messages appearing unexpectedly, programs starting or closing automatically, or Windows shutting down suddenly.
Is your modem/router or hard disk working overtime?
An e‑mail virus works by sending many copies of itself by e‑mail. Is that the activity light on your router constantly lit? Can you hear your computer’s hard disk continually working and whirring? These are not always symptoms of a computer virus. But when combined with other problems, can suggest a virus infection.

To check for viruses, scan your computer with an antivirus program. New viruses appear every day. It is important to keep your antivirus program updated. But some threats can get through your antivirus program or firewall.
We can remove spyware, viruses, pop-ups, ransomware and malware. Ransomware is a class of malware which restricts access to the computer system that it infects. It demands a ransom paid to the creator of the malware to get the restriction to be removed. Ransomware is nothing more than a scam. You should ignore any alert demanding money that this malicious software might generate. They rely on your embarrassment. Under no circumstance should you send any money to cyber criminals. This could lead to identity theft. If you have, you should contact your credit card company and dispute the charge stating that the program is a scam and a computer virus.
Virus removal can be challenging and time-consuming. And there are different versions of these threats, many more difficult than the last to remove. But so far, we have been able to help people affected by this. Contact us if you need help in dealing with ransomeware, screen locking up and other virus and security issues.
