Malware Removal

How do you remove malicious software, Malware, from your system? There are do it yourself instructions you can find on Google and the other search engines, but our advice is, call UTS. There are several different versions of Malware floating around, just waiting to get into your network, and if you aren’t proficient in it’s removal, you could end up doing more harm than good.

How can you tell if you have Malware on your system? If your network has been running fine and the response time on the various computers within your network was good, and now all of a sudden things seem to have slowed to a crawl, there is a very good chance something has infected your system.

There are other signs as well, like extensions added to your search bar, or redirects from the home page you normally see.

If you have a strong antivirus software currently installed on your system, the programs usually have a scan component you can initiate to go out and check for viruses. Before you do anything else, go ahead and run the scan. It will notify you of any viruses it detects and sometimes it will even isolate the code in a special area. Then before you do anything else, give us a call. Sometimes the virus you have will bury itself deep in your system, and once you reboot the software, it’s almost impossible to find.

In the meantime, it could be a good idea to take your system offline until we get there and can run our diagnostic programs to try to isolate the virus.

Trying to clean up Malware or Viruses yourself, unless you have some pretty high level technical skills, could be kind of like trying to re-wire your own home. You can cause a mess and it may cost you twice as much time and money to fix any mistakes you might make.
