Malware infection symptoms that let you know you may need computer repair - Malicious software can cause all kinds of strange problems to happen with your computer. Example: Think of your computer as a friend or close relative. You know how they normally behave. When they don't act normally it could possibly be an infection. Other symptoms might include:
Browser Hijacking - Malicious software can pop-up new windows or redirect you to the fake web pages or ones you didn't request, or even wish to visit. Most common browsers such as Internet Explorer, Firefox and others are susceptible and could all the sudden develop a mind of their own.
Computer Freezing Up - Malware can cause your system to freeze or hang up.
Excessive Pop-Ups - They're normally trying to sell you something. Worst case, they are trying to bog down your system by opening to many windows. Resulting in slowness or system crash.
Scareware Alerts - Malicious programs designed to look like Legitimate Malware or Anti-Virus programs. They try to rip you off by telling you that your system is infected and then getting you to give up your credit card information. You can also be directed to a website where even more malicious software can be downloaded to your system.
Sluggish Performance - Computer starts much slower than it should normally. Opening applications could take longer.
System performance tweaking - We will examine your system for weak links to upgrade. Sometimes there's a bottleneck.
General Slowness - Caused by a low amount of system memory. Hardrive errors. Too many start up programs running in the background.
Boot Speed Reduction - Technicians will disable unneeded start up applications from the boot sequence.
Uninstalling Unused Applications - Some programs run dlls, BHOs and processes in the background even when your not using them. If your not using the program then you may be able to remove it to free up resources.
