Virus removal

Virus removalWith so many people now working from home as a result of the Health issues raising from the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) Pandemic, I am trying to offer a continued service of self help regarding computer virus issues. Below is a guide to help, but if you need more then contact me and ask.

NO your computer cannot get the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19). But Coronavirus email scams are trying to cash in on your fear.

Beware of criminals

Criminals are disguising themselves to steal money or sensitive information. If you are contacted by a person or organization verify their authenticity before responding.

An Organization will:

  • never ask for your username or password to access safety information

  • never email attachments you didn’t ask for

  • never ask you to visit a link

  • never charge money to apply for a job, register for a conference, or reserve a hotel

  • never conduct lotteries or offer prizes, grants, certificates or funding through email.

Beware that criminals use email, websites, phone calls, text messages, and even fax messages for their scams.

Always consider why someone wants your information and if it is appropriate. There is no reason someone would need your username & password to access public information.

Cybercriminals use emergencies such as 2019-nCov to get people to make decisions quickly. Always take time to think about a request for your personal information, and whether the request is appropriate.

If you gave sensitive information, don’t panic.

If you believe you have given data such as your username or passwords to cybercriminals, immediately change your passwords on each site where you have used them.

Virus removal

Linux

After over 10 years of using and installing Linux on over 300 different computers I have NEVER seen a virus on a Linux machine. So the answer is Linux, well not so easy as who can predict the future and if they will start to target such systems. Linux operating systems are fairly stable and secure, they may not completely be immune to threats.

Free anti-virus program for Linux system ClamTk

It is recommended you install ClamTk from official repositories. Check your distribution first, and always install from trusted sources.

Windows

Computer running slow? Strange messages popping up? Browser homepage changed without your permission? This could be the work of adware, malware, or a virus that is hard to find, and harder to remove. The following tools employ innovative technology engineered solely to detect and remove these unwanted items. These are the cleaners of choice for technicians.

Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool

Malwarebytes

SUPERAntiSpyware

adwcleaner

Ccleaner - this is NOT a virus tool but simply used to clean your system after the above have finished

Windows Defender - Free and already included in your Windows system

They are totally safe and well tested. Install and then allow them to remove the suggested items.

Remember

  • No single antivirus program will always find everything

  • No single scan will always find everything

  • You may need outside help

Apple MacOS

macOS includes a technology called Gatekeeper, that's designed to ensure that only trusted software runs on your Mac.

The safest place to get apps for your Mac is the App Store. Apple reviews each app in the App Store before it’s accepted and signs it to ensure that it hasn’t been tampered with or altered. If there’s ever a problem with an app, Apple can quickly remove it from the store.

If you download and install apps from the internet or directly from a developer, macOS continues to protect your Mac. When you install Mac apps, plug-ins, and installer packages from outside the App Store, macOS checks the Developer ID signature to verify that the software is from an identified developer and that it has not been altered.

CCleaner for Mac

Malwarebytes for Mac
