Probably the most common problem I get asked to fix is a virus infection. Many customers are using expired software or worse yet, none at all. Being unprotected like that opens you up to a higher risk of infection, which not only costs money to fix but also means that you are without your computer for a day or two. I also find that some customers don’t keep up to date with Windows updates and some are still using Windows XP. Click here for more information on this.
Some customers use free software like AVG or avast but I believe that you get what you pay for. These solutions work to an extent but you still have to pay a subscription to get the full protection that you need. With the proliferation of torrent sites, many forms of malware and adware like to come along for the ride and I’ve had many clients that have inadvertently been attacked by trojans, adware and nuisance popups and search engines.
For around $100 a year, it is prudent to be protected with a reputable antivirus solution that is up to date. Please contact us for more information.
