PC Workshop just returned from a customer in Great Sankey. Their Dell computer tower was running really slow due to several viruses and trojans, we tend to see this scenario on a regular basis , partly through a lack of a decent security package which includes a firewall, that coupled with a monthly scan by a couple of malware program’s such as spybot, super anti spyware etc. which are free online. But the most probable reason would be the file sharing sites that seem to abound with viruses and if you take the risk to over ride your security then the results may well end up like this.
PC Workshop in Warrington managed to remove the virus and some of the problems on-site but it was decided to take away the infected computer as it wasn’t significantly improved. PC Workshop loaned the customer a computer while theirs was repaired so they didn’t have that “lost my right arm syndrome”. Once back on the workbench and the customers work saved we can then reformatt the hard drive and restore the system to its former speed and effectiveness, all the latest drivers are reinstalled and a excellent security package along with numerous programmes the customers work can be scanned and restored back in the relevant folders.
The customer was left quite happy in the knowledge that their computer would be back the following day, refreshed and as fast as it was when new!
You would be quite surprised at how much quicker and efficient your computer would be after PC Workshop have reformatted the system with no loss of data.
