Malware, short for malicious software, is software used to disrupt computer operation, gather sensitive information, or gain access to private computer systems. It can appear in the form of code, scripts, active content, and other software. Malware includes computer viruses, ransomware, worms, trojan horses, rootkits, keyloggers, dialers, spyware, adware, malicious BHOs, rogue security software, and other malicious programs; the majority of active malware threats are usually worms or trojans rather than viruses.

Specialist Virus Removal from TCC Computers
At TCC Computers we offer specialist virus removal to minimize the disruption if you do get infected.
Virus and malware pose a serious threat in today’s computing world. They come in all forms, from simple but annoying pop-up ads to full-blown lockdown rootkit viruses. Sometimes, the only solution is to wipe clean the machine and have windows reinstalled completely. Of course, this can be very disrupting since you would have to reinstall all your programs, reconfigure your settings and potentially lose your valuable photos, movies or documents.
Is a Format Re-install of Windows the only way? It doesn’t have to be!
At TCC Computers, our certified engineers have the skills and experience to make the format-reinstall as a last resort. Rather than simply reinstalling windows to remove the nastiest of viruses, our experienced engineers constantly explore new methods for disinfecting specific viruses, to avoid the inconvenience of having to reinstall windows. We have the servers to backup and restore your data, your settings and get you back up and running with minimal down time, reversing the damage caused by the viruses and putting your machine back to how it was before the infection.
