In general, anti-virus programs can catch most of the dangerous code that tries to infect your PC. However, there isn’t a single anti-virus that can catch them all. The technicians at Trek PC Tsawwassen are specially trained to locate and remove viruses and other computer infections.

Computer viruses fall under many categories. here are just some of them:

Boot sector virus – This virus infects your hard drive and works in the background.

Browser Hijacker –
This type of virus infects your browser such as Safari, Firefox or Chrome and redirects the page you want to visit to an advertisement website page.  This virus also changes the search results you see when you search on Google and usually also changes your homepage to one that looks a lot like Google.

Polymorphic Virus – Evades anti-virus utilities by changing its own program to prevent detection.

Resident Virus – Loads a side virus that restores the main virus when deleted

Rootkit Virus – Invisible virus that hides and runs in the background

Trojan Virus – Gets installed when loading a program or utility you want

Keylogger Virus – Records your passwords and sends them back to virus creator

Ransomware – Stops you from using your computer until you pay with a green dot MoneyPak. This shows up in many forms like the FBI computer virus

Worm – Is a virus program that copies and multiplies itself by using computer networks

Fake Antivirus – Logos and images look almost like the real thing. They run a fake scan then displays a result page of all the viruses it found. Then asks you to purchase the program to remove them.

Spyware / Adware – tracking and storing Internet users’ movements on the Web and serving up pop-up ads to Internet users.

So what should you do if you suspect you have a virus?
