malware and virus removal in Prescott by SofTech Computer RepairAs a computer owner, it is important to understand some of the things that might affect your computer. SofTech Computers, local Prescott professional for malware removal, would like to give you a little more information since it affects many computers every day.

Most computer users have heard about “viruses” that can attack your computer. A virus is a specific type of malware and the term is more familiar to the public. Malware is malicious software that is written to harm and infect a computer. Here are some types of malware:

Virus: This is a specific type of computer code that is contagious and infects other software on your computer. Once opened and shared, it can also spread to other computers.

Trojans: This is a type of virus that is designed to make the user think they it is a safe program and OK for them to run. They are often programmed to steal personal and financial information and in some cases to take over the resources of the computer’s system files.

Adware: Adware is advertising-supported software. It is designed to examine which Internet sites you visit frequently and then presents ads based on your usage. Not all adware has malicious intent, but it can slow down the performance of your computer.

Spyware: This malware actually spies on you and tracks your activity. This software allows a hacker to gain information about the computer user and is often very hard to detect.

Worms: This type of malware will replicate itself and destroys information and files saved on the computer, including the system operating files.

Ransomware: This is an advanced type of malware that restricts access to your computer system until the user pays a fee. It may show up as a pop-up warning stating that you have been locked out of your computer with a phone number to call to “get help”.
