Virus, Spyware & Malware Removal

Viruses and spyware can cause all kinds of performance problems for computers. Is your desktop running slowly? Have a laptop constantly plagued by error messages? What about friends complaining about emails they received from you which you never sent? These are all symptoms of viruses and spyware and could indicate your computer has “caught” one or more of either. The sooner they’re removed, the greater the likelihood you’ll avoid permanent damage to your files or even data loss. It’s a tricky process but fortunately, we’re experts! We will:
