Consult A Pro becomes Emsisoft Reseller

Posted by CONSULTAPRO on 06/23/13


Removing viruses has always been a core focus of our business. A majority of calls over the years have been for the removal of viruses. What really sets us apart from most computer companies, is that we REMOVE the virus and understand how it works .. we don't just put a band aid on things, and in most cases we do not need to do a reinstall. A reinstall is a sure fire way to get rid of the problem ... just as if your car was broke down and you ditched it and bought a new one ... pretty crazy idea .. so why would a format of your computer be any different. You would have to install every program again, back up your personal files, which are word documents, pictures, music, etc. and chance loosing some info and or functionality. The cost and time involved in most cases is expensive.

We have set up a virus workshop ... what this is, is a isolated computer that we infect, then learn how to clean many call this a sandbox. Most infections that we see are generated by pornography, free music, free programs and peer to peer sharing. Like mom said "nothing is for free". However ... this does not mean that a simple Google search can wind you up in the virus pool either. Websites that get hacked, sometimes will have bad code injected into the script that loads and BAM ... you're infected.

Ever get a popup of an adult site ...? Ever notice advertisements for the things you searched for earlier? Has your homepage changed or you see installed toolbars you didn't install? ALL signs of a possible infection.

The newest infections are rasomware ... they hold your computer data hostage, such as the moneypak or the FBI virus. They want you to pay before they allow access to your computer ... you can't log into Windows until you pay!

Well now that we have teamed up with Emsisoft to bring you the best in our experience and their software, there is almost no infections that we can't detect and remove. We're confident, you're safe, and we are all happy.
