Malware & Spyware Removal in Utah
Has your computer been compromised with malware or spyware? Malware is installed on your machine, for the benefit of another party. Typically malware will steal your personal information, banking information, and leads to serious damage to your computer. Malware programs designed to “protect” your computer could end up transmitting the information to other parties without your knowledge.
Different Types of Malware
There are several different types of malware that can lead to issues for your computer. Some common malware categories include:
- Virus – Software is installed via email attachments and websites and it will start to damage a computer by deleting files, destroying computer memory, and reformatting the hard disk.
- Adware – This software will display ads when you are on the Internet.
- Spyware – This software gathers information and will transmit it to other parties. Spyware will gather information about the websites you view along with your computer IP address.
- Hijacking Software – Certain software will modify your browser settings and creates desktop shortcuts and advertising pop-ups. If a browser is hijacked, the software will redirect links to other sites, which can hinder your ability to visit the websites you want to see.
