Virus Detection and Removal

Virus and Spyware Removal

What’s the difference between a Virus and Spyware?

Answer: A Virus spreads software, usually malicious in nature, from computer to computer. Spyware (sometimes called adware) collects information about you without appropriate notice and consent.

There are other forms of Malware (meaning malicious software) that you may have heard of such as Worms, Key loggers, Browser Hijackers and Trojans. All of which you need to remove from your system ASAP.

How?

There are many software programs that try to eliminate the treat of these rogue programs, and amongst the best of them we’d recommend Malwarebytes. The program is available free to download and is a one-off scanner so it does not affect your resident antivirus system.

No software provides 100% protection, so be careful while surfing the ‘net, be wary when opening emails from people you know as many viruses will propagate via email address books without the infected users knowledge.
