Malware and Virus Removal Service




Virus and Malware Removal Service is one of PC Overhauls’ specialties. I have worked on thousands of infected Windows XP, Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 10 desktops, laptops and MAC OSX computers in the past 19 years.

 

This message is a good example of a fake virus warning. Calling the phone number will connect you to a technician who will remote connect, possibly damage or infect your system, and then bill you for hundreds of dollars.

 

Malware has changed over that time from worms to password and credit card stealing Trojan horse viruses, to adware and spyware toolbars and fake antivirus programs to modern ransomware and everything in between. I have experience with all of them.

I have a proven step by step process for cleaning the infected files from your computer.

Sometimes the damage is so severe that the system needs to be wiped clean and reloaded from scratch. You can learn about that process, the PC Overhaul, here. The PC Overhaul and virus removal service cost the same, so you will be charged for one or the other, not both.

Typical malware removal takes 24-48 hours depending on how sever the infection is, but can sometimes be done the same day.

Please contact me via email or on Facebook for more information or to set up an appointment to have your computer overhauled.

Repair or Replace?

All hardware will fail at some point. The typical lifespan of both laptop and desktop computers is in the 3-5 year range, and according to this study by Backblaze, 90% of hard drives will last 3 years, but after that there’s a 12% chance per year that your drive will die (always keep current backups).

If this is your home computer, you may want to make different choices than if these are business computers. Often you can delay replacing a home computer until a good deal comes along, and you may have other devices to fill the void in the meantime if you are waiting for a repair. But in business, time lost waiting for a repair can offset any potential savings.

So should you repair or replace?

This handy infographic by Lexicon Technologies shows there can be a decent amount of money saved when making the right choice between repairing and replacing broken technology.
