We do a lot of work removing viruses and unwanted programs (aka malware, spyware, bloatware). Sometimes, Mac computers get infected too. We recently cleaned up a Mac system that had been infected with the “Chumware.com” search engine malware. A pop-up blocker could have prevented this.

It is highly recommended that you don’t click on anything in your web browser that you didn’t intend to see or visit! If you see any pop-up windows asking you to call a phone number to “fix” or “clean up” your system, either close that window or shut down your web browser immediately. This is also true of pop-up windows pretending to be from major vendors like Microsoft or Apple.

If you fear that you have an infected system, contact us today! We are here to help and will clean up your computer system, implementing security measures to keep it running in great shape moving forward, free of malware!
