Symptoms that your computer or laptop may have a virus

  • Computer running slow – If you are continually having to wait on programmes to load and pages to refresh
  • Cannot log on to system – Some forms of virus can block you from getting logged on to your computer and/or data
  • Pop-ups – If you are suddenly inundated with unwanted pop ups appearing on your screen
  • Adware – This will display unwanted advertisements
  • Malware – Malware will corrupt data files and gather sensitive information such as passwords and bank details
  • Suspicious software appears – Strange updates or programmes may appear in your computer

As with most things prevention is better than cure. If you have a computer then it is of vital importance that you have an up to date security system which will protect you and your personal data from any sort of virus. A security system will protect your data, and all your online transactions and banking information. It will allow you, and your children, to browse the internet safely.

Personal usage is just as important now as business usage. Bear in mind that there is no such thing as “free” internet security. You may get one element e.g. Virus protection ‘free’ for a trial period but after a set amount of days you will be left unprotected. A good Internet Security Package such as Kaspersky Internet Security will include protection against Viruses, Spyware, Spam, Phishing and offers excellent Parental Control protection.
