Spyware, malware, and trojan removal

If you have had programs unexpectedly installing on your system, popping up advertisements, changing (hijacking) your home page (or start page), modifying your search results, dialing out or the like then your system has been compromised by some spyware, adware, trojan, hijacker or dialer software program.

Technically, this means that a program or groups of programs have been installed on your system without your consent or knowledge.

These programs report something back to the software writer or website that installed them. And this happens whether it be websites that you consciously visit or simply whenever you turn-on your computer or start-up your Internet browser.

Adware is a program that displays advertisements on your computer. These are in addition to the usual advertisements you see on the web pages that you visit. Adware pop-up advertising windows on your system are not necessarily generated by the websites you happen to visit, but rather by programs that remain stored on your hard drive and are executed at intervals determined by the adware writer or company.

Dialers are programs that get installed on your system and try to dial out to some telephone line somewhere, sometimes incurring expensive phone bills.
Keyloggers record the keystrokes you type on your computer (some are more sophisticated in capturing screen shots, etc) and either log them or report them to the person who installed them. These Trojans are the most dangerous, transmitting your passwords, bank accounts, and credit card information.

As a group, these malicious programs can wreck havoc on your system; causing system crashes, slow response, or even steal your important personal or business data. 

Doc's Computer Services understand the application of anti-spyware programs. Some are free, others are available at a nominal cost. Infections have reached a level whereby removal can be a tricky process. It's no longer as simple as using a tool like 'Spybot - Search & Destroy' or Ad-Aware and getting the computer like new again. The aim of Doc's Computer Services is to provide safe methods for removing malware which includes a step by step assessment, analysis and removal process.

Backup strategies

Are you playing russian roulette with your important data?

Disaster can strike at any moment. It can take the form of natural occurrences, or in the form of fire, theft, sabotage, hardware failure, or user error. Any of these occurrences of data loss can severely threaten your personal or company's success.

Who can predict the next power outage, natural disaster, rampaging virus or human error that will bring your system and your business to a halt?

Imagine the cost of losing these files:

  • Billing
  • Payroll & Accounting Personnel
  • Clients & Vendors
  • Correspondence & Manuscripts
  • Email & Word Processing
  • Art, Graphics & Photos
  • Spreadsheets & Databases
  • Plans & Proposals
  • Programs & Macros

Protect your data with a systematic and sensible backup strategy. Years of experience have taught Doc's Computer Services that there is no "best" backup strategy for "all" users.

Allow Doc's Computer Services the opportunity to assist you in developing a backup plan for your home or business system. The plan will be reliable, simple, and affordable.
