We have had many customers this week contact us regarding intrusive malware that has been infecting their PC’s and slowing down performance. These pieces of malware can either be invisible or they can claim to be pieces of software that apparently increase the performance of your system e.g. software updaters.
Many customers can innocently download these by opening emails, downloading files from the internet as some websites offer these as what appears to be a genuine add-on. However, they are becoming increasingly popular and some people may not even notice they are infecting their machines.
Symptoms of malware infected devices include slow performance, unwanted pop-ups and even the potential to corrupt your Windows installation. Malware is designed to work in the background, so users may not even notice it.
The most common way to avoid installing malware is to make sure you have the relevant protection and that it is up to date. At Computerman we make sure that you have adequate protection to avoid malware.
If you have a device that is slower than normal or are experiencing continues pop-ups please do not hesitate to contact us on 01622 677677 or visit our website at https://www.computermanuk.com/ We’d be more than happy to help and remember – our health check is completely FREE.
