Virus removal is a wide topic today. Specifically speaking, most of the issues faced today that are labeled viruses are really spyware/malware. There are still viruses circulating today, but the business of stealing people's identity and personal information is at an all time high.
What's the difference? A virus is an illegal program built to cause havoc and/or to destroy an end-user's data. Spyware and malware are programs that are craftily created to deceive the computer user into loading the program themselves and is therefore not illegal. Thousands of programs today include spyware in their install and clearly disclose this fact in the user agreement that is bypassed by the customer.
So what's the answer? There are a myriad of programs out there claiming to protect you from spyware and malware. Surprisingly, many of them are actually spyware and malware programs themselves. This is why putting our experience and expertise to work to protect your computer and your family from unwanted intrusion is so important.
