Your System is Infected. What Now?
Once you’ve determined your computer is infected, there isn’t a moment to lose in the fight to get rid of it. Run your antivirus program, and if you don’t have one, there are a number of free programs available. Avast, Avira, AVG and many more offer free versions directly from their website for download. Don’t attempt to access personal data or financial information. Many malware and virus programs are designed to either log your keystrokes or flat out transmit data to another entity. The recipient of that data can then use your information to steal your money, your identity, and your reputation.
If you aren’t able to quarantine and delete the virus, seek professional help. Whether it’s a member of Geek Squad or a staff member here at Loyal IT, a trained IT technician will have additional tools available to them to remove the virus and restore your system’s functionality. If you’ve been having a system issue you just can’t shake, get in touch today.
