Virus Removal Brisbane

One of the downsides of owning a computer is the risk of being infected viruses, trojans, malware, spyware, scamware and various other nasties on the internet.

Many viruses nowadays are subtle and so you may not even know if you have been infected. Some viruses, known as keyloggers, log down every keystroke you type on your computer and discretely send it to hackers and fraudsters in order to steal private information, such as credit numbers and internet banking details.

But more recently, there has been a relatively new breed of viruses, which make their way on to your system and pose as antivirus software. They often tell you that have been infected with a range of different viruses and trojans, when infact the so-called virus scanner itself is the real virus, ironically. When you attempt to remove the viruses you purportedly have, the fake virus scanner will insist you buy their software. If you don't, the virus will continue to flood you with nag messages and most of the time will restrict all basic functionality on your computer.
