Not Everything Is A Virus Adware Is A Problem To

Not everything that causes problems on your computer is a Virus or Malware. Adware causes a lot of problems and isn’t picked up by conventional virus protection programs.

Adware can be anything from injection of ads into your browser to the changing of your Internet connection settings to a proxy that redirects all of your web browsing through someone’s servers so they can monitor all of your web activity or redirect you to where they will make money from your web travels.

Standard Antivirus Won’t Help You With Adware

Standard antivirus programs that you buy at the store won’t help you from being hindered or nagged by adware. Specialized protection programs are needed in order to prevent them and specialized programs are needed to find adware to keep you safe.

There are some Endpoint Protection packages available that do protect against adware. The best way to keep yourself protected is still the experienced computer technician.  Over the last decade computer technicians that have been around have been trained just by experience to know what to look for and the best way to remove not just the Virus and Malware but the Adware as well.

Experienced Computer Technicians Still Diagnose

Technicians that have been trained correctly actually still diagnose for not only Viruses and Malware but for the widest range of possible problems possible. Hardware problems are all to often missed because a computer professional jumps to a conclusion and starts working from what they feel is the problem instead of following the standards that they should know to make sure that all problems are identified instead of just a quick fix being applied.

In the 1990’s viruses were created to mimic hardware problems. Countless thousands of dollars were spent replacing hard drives and motherboards when a simple cleaning of a virus would have fixed the issue.  Today, thousands of dollars are being spent to remove a simple virus when hardware issues like memory that has gone bad or a failing hard drive is creating a majority of the issues.
