Malware is the most intrusive type of computer attack an individual faces on the internet today. Internet Users who get malware are usually deceived by some sort of advertisement and end up downloading a program they believed would help them. The malicious hackers often disguise their destructive code in alleged toolbars, anti-virus software, and other software that deceives the common internet user. Most of the time, internet users have no clue their computer has been infiltrated by malware. More often than not, the computer may not function properly, until the virus has been removed completely from the system. The sole intent of malware is to modify your PC’s registry, and ultimately destroy your computer’s overall performance. Malware Removal is essential in any computer clean up.

The main purpose of spyware is to market products or services to you, via your PC, typically without your consent. It is intrusive just like many forms of Malware, but it is not usually self replicating the way malware is. When spyware presents itself on your computer, it can often come from P2P clients, unsolicited pop up advertisements, unwanted routing of an HTTP request to some out of the ordinary advertising site known as “Hijacking”. The goal of spyware is to intrude a user’s computer for maximum commercial gain. Spyware Removal is one of the toughest challenges that PC users face due to the complex tactics that spyware uses to infiltrate your system.

A browser Hijack, simply put, is a form of malware that is designed to take over your web browser, for commercial gain or any other purpose. The Hijacking code gets into the registry of your computer, and it completely ruins your ability to surf the internet freely without problems. One of the most common types of browser hijackers is the homepage hijack, which automatically sets your homepage to an unwanted URL. The Hi-Jack automatically overwrites any manual settings you may have chosen for your browser homepage.
Additionally, browser hijacks may disallow access to certain anti-virus websites. They often will run Active X scripts through pop up ads that request permission to install a program. Once the program is launched, the hijack can eat away at your computer’s registry and ruin your browsing experience altogether. A browser Hijack can be removed by a computer expert. Many anti-virus programs are simply unable to monitor or catch browser Hi-Jacks. Some browsers defend against the hijacks better than others. Internet Explorer is much more vulnerable to these exploits then more modern browsers, like Mozilla Firefox.

The purpose of a Trojan, also known as a Trojan horse, is to allow a user unauthorized access to target a personal computer system or large computer network. Once a Trojan horse is installed on a user’s computer, the hacker then has the ability to control that user’s PC in almost all aspects. The hacker can add or delete any type of files, view the user’s screen, log keystrokes, waste computer space, extract private data that is sensitive to the victim..(security codes, passwords, financial information such as banking or credit card information) To avoid Trojans, never open a file or click a link that you are unsure of. Many Trojan horses are delivered via email or through some sort of website scam.

Computer lagging often occurs when a user Is using multiple programs at once and the user’s computer does not have sufficient memory to handle numerous applications at once. Computer freezing occurs when a user’s computer completely ceases to function (unable to move mouse/browse) and is usually a more serious indicator that your computer may be infected with some sort of virus, or that it is in need of a PC tune-up. More often than not though, PC’s will lag or freeze due to some sort of spyware, malware, Trojan horse, or any type of computer virus.

Sometimes, connection problems are due to simple internet configuration settings, which can be changed from your computer’s control panel.

Sometimes a user’s computer may boot slower than normal. Sometimes this is related to how computer shut down. Many types a user will not shut down their computer completely, or properly, and the result of that is a slow boot up session. This can be solved by simply rebooting properly. Never reboot your computer when you have tons of unclosed programs running. Close all programs & applications, then reboot from the start menu. Unfortunately, problems with booting or rebooting are due to overall system failure and must be analyzed by a computer expert.
