Virus Repair & Service
Different techniques for computer virus removal and repair services
A computer virus is a malicious program that can copy itself and infect multiple computers. It spreads from a host computer to other computers either over a network or the Internet, or through a removable medium, such as a floppy disk, CD, DVD, or USB drive. A network virus is distributed through shareware, pirated software, e-mail, P2P programs, or other programs where users share data. Getting a virus on your system is frustrating and can be hazardous to the health of your computer. Today's malicious software can even steal your identity and other important information, and can destroy your hard-earned credit rating. Fortunately, by updating your PC and using antivirus program, you can permanently remove unwanted software from your computer.

Virus removal tools
Free virus removal tools distributed by antivirus manufacturers cannot act as a substitute for installed antivirus software, but if your PC is already infected, it is the next best thing to do. McAfee Avert Labs offers a utility to run in Windows that cleans some of the more common malware. A rescue CD lets you access the system from a clean boot and it takes only a few minutes to create one. Microsoft offers a free tool to remove existing active software in your PC. The tool is offered via Automatic Updates, Windows Updates, and Microsoft Updates, or it can be manually downloaded. Similarly, Symantec offers a range of free cleaning tools for individual malware removal.
Virus repair process
If you suspect that your PC has been infected by a virus, it is important to act fast and eliminate the problem with a virus repair solution. The most affordable option is to download a free edition of antivirus software that can detect viruses and other threats efficiently. The last option is to take your system to a shop with an onsite certified virus repair technician and allow them to clear up the mess. But, if your computer is totally filled with viruses, Trojans and spyware, completing erasing the hard drive becomes the only option.
Virus protection and prevention tips
There are a number of ways through which you can protect your computer from viruses and lower your risk of possible infection. Antivirus software is the first line of defense against any malicious applications. It not only monitors downloaded content but also scan your PC for any missed files. A firewall limits access to your information by third parties. Also, ensure a virus scan on all incoming e-mails especially those with attachments. If you use a program like Microsoft Outlook to collect your mails, it is always good to have another e-mail-focused antivirus program that can scan your messages as they are received. Search engines like Google and Yahoo! make it easy to click on a website that is never heard by you. Under such cases, you need to make sure that you visit and click only trustworthy sites.
