What is malware and how do I get rid of it?

Malware is short for malicious software – software used by hackers to impair your device’s function, steal your device’s data, or even gain control of your device itself.

Typically, malware is downloaded unknowingly when an unsuspecting user opens an infected file or visits an infected website. Once it’s on your computer, it launches a specific kind of attack based on its design. For example, keyloggers record each keystroke and report it to hackers, who look for usernames, passwords, and other sensitive credentials.

We will protect your computer against malware by installing an-tivirus software and running routine scans. If your computer is running slowly or taking unusual actions (such as “reminding” you to download strange software), it may be infected with malware. Run an anti-virus scan to check for, identify, and remove malware from your device
