Virus / Malware Removal Tips
Make sure that your anti-virus or security software is
up-to-date. Outdated security software
is next to useless.
Make sure that all your temporary internet files have been
cleaned out, as these are a favourite
hiding place for many viral, malware and trojan files.
Try running your
anti-virus / security software in Safe
Mode. Detection and removal rates can
often be increased in this mode.
Avoiding Virus / Malware Infection
Be extremely careful when
opening up email attachments.
Many fake emails purporting to be from banks, rRevenue cComissioners
or courier companies can look amazingly authentic. If in doubt, scan
any suspicious attachments with your security software before
anti-virus software packages, such as AVG, any good?
A recurring question we get asked
from users is, “Are free anti-virus software packages available
to download from the internet any good?” Well, from our
experience, it depends on how you use your computer. If the system is
used just as an office computer for word processing, accounts, etc,
with some internet browsing of safe sites, then free anti-virus will
probably be adequate. However, if the system is being used by
multiple users and used extensively to browse and download from the
internet, then you might need a more robust security package. And in
a lot of cases, “paid for” security applications often
have the edge as they have more comprehensive virus definitions and
better detection and removal capabilities.
I’ve got a virus
infection on my PC, and yet my anti-virus protection was fully
up-to-date? How did this happen?
From a recent independent study, the
average detection rate of the five best-selling anti-virus
applications is only 78 per cent. Anti-virus software is just a level
of protection and not a catch-all solution.
