Virus Removal

I Love My PC can safely and completely remove viruses from your computer. We have a range of virus removal tools along with the technical expertise to make sure your computer is virus free, including; Virus Removal – Spyware Removal – Malware Removal Adware Removal – Root-kit Removal – Trojan Removal – Fake Anti-virus Removal. We can also advise you about popular anti-virus & security software packages.

What is a Virus?
A computer virus is a computer program that can copy itself and infect a computer. The term “virus” is also commonly used to refer to other types of malware, including but not limited to adware and spyware programs that do not have the reproductive ability. A virus can spread over a network or the Internet, or carried on removable media such as a fl oppy disk, CD, DVD, or USB drive.

What is Malware?
Malware, short for malicious software, is a software designed to secretly access a computer system without the owner’s informed consent. Malware includes computer viruses, worms, trojan horses, spyware, dishonest adware, scareware, crimeware, most root-kits.

Why do I need anti-virus software?
It is important to guard against virus or malware infection of your computer to prevent information about you or your services being stolen or misused, your computer being disabled in some way, or your computer being used without your knowledge. Most free anti-virus programs do a reasonable job of keeping out viruses, but are not generally so effective at protecting against other malware, including identity theft. We have many years of experience removing virus and malware infections from hundreds of computers and recommend several packages, depending on your needs, which are available at our shop counter at discounted prices.

I have an infection – What now?
The most annoying part of an infection is it frequently prevents your computer accessing the internet properly. Therefore it is difficult to find help or resources to remove the infection. We are well equipped to scan for and remove malware using specialist software on our dedicated computers. In some cases the damage done to the operating system after the virus/malware has been removed is so severe that it cannot be easily repaired. If this happens, then your fi les have to be copied off your hard disk, your operating system re-installed, and then your files copied back. In this case, we offer a special package to try and keep your costs down.

We offer three principal levels of data recovery;

2. Low-level fi le system corruption recovery (pending evaluation)
3. Damaged drive recovery (pending evaluation)

Evaluation is a process to determine the true condition of a drive and/or the data contained on it. This process determines the work and costs involved for a successful recovery, or even if it’s possible. The evaluation charge is non-refundable whatever the outcome.
