Spyware, Malware and Virus Removal Las Vegas NV:
Malware, short for malicious software, is a term used to cover all types of programs that attempt to gain unauthorized access to your PC, steal information, and interrupt computer operations. One of the best ways to avoid being tricked by the different types of malware is to know what the software does and how it’s likely to gain access to your computer.
Virus: A program designed to interrupt your ability to use the PC,whether via a crash, lost files, or a corrupted Web browser.
Spyware: Monitors what you do and type on your computer in order to gather data that will let hackers break into your accounts.
Rootkit: This malware shuts down your computer’s security software and tries to block you from changing any settings or fixing the problems it causes.
Spam: Unasked-for emails, some of which may link you to malicious, infected content.
The sad truth is, every time you use your computer, malware, rootkits, phishing sites, scams, and hackers are all waiting for their chance to wreak havoc on your PC, software, personal privacy, and identity.
- Does it take f-o-r-e-v-e-r to boot your computer?
- Has your web browser been hijacked by a virus, launching a random no-name search page whenever you start browsing the web?
- Is access to the Internet painfully slow?
- Do you get flooded with annoying popup windows whenever you get on the Internet?
- You need your computer repaired!
Viruses change and evolve quickly, so you need software with an automated scanning and updating schedule. The antivirus software should also be accurate – you don’t want to swim through false positive virus warnings all day – antivirus software with signature scanning and consideration for heuristics are very reliable.
You can save yourself a lot of grief by simply avoiding questionable websites and minimizing downloads, but that isn’t enough. Computers can open, manipulate and download files on their own, so you need antivirus software that covers viruses, Trojan horses, rootkits, spyware and more; software with features like email scanning, web protection, antiphising, antirootkit, and firewall protection.
Make no mistake about it — It’s not just viruses that affect our computers. Nowadays, there are many types of malware to watch out for. Spyware, Adware, Trojan Horses, KeyLoggers and Worms are just a few that can exploit weaknesses and cause significant damage and financial loss if left unchecked. Call us for computer repair and virus removal service in Las Vegas Nevada.
I visited Las Vegas on a business trip, during which I caught a virus on my laptop. These guys were great! They had my computer fixed and back to me the same day.Written by: NicoleVirus RemovalDate published: 11/29/20115 / 5 stars

Local Las Vegas Fake Anti-Virus Removal
Computers infected with fake anti-virus applications are being seen with increasing regularity on campus. Machines are infected when users are presented with a pop-up that seems to indicate that the computer is infected with viruses, and they are asked to install an application to fix the problem. This scare tactic is common with this scenario, and can look like a legitimate application as seen in the screen shot below:
Once installed, the program makes it appear as though the machine is riddled with viruses and prompts the user to buy the fake antivirus software. The user then pays for the software, netting the cybercrook a tidy profit, not to mention the mark’s lucrative credit card information.
What Can You Do To Stay Secure
The more often you use your laptop, the more likely you are to leave behind scraps of private information and bits of your identity in the applications you use and the Web sites you visit. Thus, you need to protect your laptop as a valuable piece of property, as a repository of digital information, and as a portal to your online finances.
- Your operating system most likely includes a software firewall, so make sure it’s turned on whenever you go online.
- Keeping on top of updates and fixes for your system is also a vital necessity. Make sure Windows updates are being installed automatically.
- It’s also important to regularly check for and install updates to third-party software such as Java, Adobe Flash Player, and your component drivers.
- Enable password protection on your user account with strong password.
- Enable encryption whenever possible. Some versions of Windows 7 and Windows 8 include BitLocker Drive Encryption, which makes sure your data is safe even if your laptop goes missing.
- While on the road, you need to resist the urge to connect to open Wi-Fi networks whenever possible. Data thieves can set up open Wi-Fi networks themselves or log onto open networks to sniff and snoop the private data of others logged onto the unprotected network.
When you see a “scareware” pop-up, it’s important that you don’t click anywhere within the pop-up, because any area that you select may have been manipulated by the cybercriminal to let it start installing viruses onto your PC. Simultaneously press CTRL+W on your keyboard, which should close the popup. If that doesn’t work, press CTRL+ALT+DELETE, select Start Task Manager, and click Applications. Then, right-click the task for your Web browser and select End Task. This will kill all the Web browser tabs you had open, including any that had been taken over by the scareware pop-up.
Generally, you can start Safe Mode by pressing F8 right after your system’s boot screen disappears and right before you would normally see the Windows boot screen. This should provide you with a variety of boot options. Running in Safe Mode should prevent any malware from loading at startup, thus making it easier to remove.
Malware can prove to be the most common and dangerous online threat to your system. Visit Neon Computers for spyware virus removal Las Vegas and keep your system safe.
