Frequently Asked Questions

A computer virus is a type of computer program that, when executed, replicates itself by modifying other computer programs and inserting its own code. If this replication succeeds, the affected areas are then said to be “infected” with a computer virus, a metaphor derived from biological viruses.

Malware is any software intentionally designed to cause disruption to a computer, server, client, or computer network, leak private information, gain unauthorised access to information or systems, deprive users of access to information or which unknowingly interfere with the user’s computer security and privacy.

If you have been caught by a phone scam often the scammers will either install remote access software so they access your computer whenever they want and/or they will lock the computer out and try to charge you £’ hundreds to unlock the device.

We will be able to unlock the accounts, fully scan the computer for malware/viruses that have been installed and remove the remote access software used to initiate the attack… We will also recommend an Antivirus, firewall and malware solution to help protect your computer in the future.
