Northern Virginia Computer Viruses Disguised As Antivirus Software – PC Viruses Disguised As Antivirus Software, Northern Virginia

It all starts off with a pop-up on your computer with a warning message telling you that your computer is infected with a virus and to update your anti-virus software, but really it’s a malicious program that targets your personal data to steal your bank account information and freezing your system.

This fake anti-virus program will look like it is scanning your system for viruses but is actually attempting to steal your personal data instead.  When you click on the “remove viruses now”, instead of removing viruses from your computer, viruses are actually being installed.  Not only are these viruses not detected by some actual anti-virus software’s, some of these programs will also prevent you from opening your actual anti-virus program or the “add/remove programs” in the control panel to try to get rid of them.

If you believe that you have fallen victim to one of these scams it is important to get it taken care of right away.  Here at Geek ABC we specialize in virus, spyware and malware removal and can help you remove these programs.  We can be reached via our website www.geekabc.com, or give us a call at 1.877.GEEKABC (1.877.433.5222) to schedule an appointment.  You can also check out our blog at http://geekabc.blogspot.com/ for more information on other topics.  We provide mobile, onsite computer service and repair for businesses and residents throughout the Washington DC metro area.

A few things that you can do to protect yourself from such scams are to:

  1. Install  antivirus and antispyware software and keep it up-to-date
  2. Install a firewall and keep it turned on
  3. Keep your OS (operating system) up to date using automatic updating
  4. Always use extreme caution when opening links in e-mail or social networking sites.  If you do clink on links, make sure they are from a trustworthy source
  5. Familiarize yourself phishing scams and know what scams are currently circulating as well as common scams that have been around for a while

Nobody should have to deal with issues such as these but the fact is they are out there and anybody can fall victim.  Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you need help with your computer or network.  And if you have been struggling to find a trustworthy computer and network repair and service provider, your search is over!
