Just a quick note today…
Twice this week I’ve been asked to sort out PCs that have become unusable because they were infected with viruses and scareware.One PC was taking an eternity to do anything and the other one had locked the user out completely.
In both cases, the owners weren’t using any antivirus and in one case they had the firewall switched off.
Thankfully I was able to restore both machines back to normal and installed the necessary security to help prevent the same thing happening again.
They were also very lucky not to have lost any data or have their credit card details copied (as far as I know)
If you don’t want to pay for antivirus protection, then at least install something like Avast which is available for free.
