Demystifying your computer!

Computers can be incredibly intimidating! While some of today’s young people are learning to use touch screens before they learn to write the alphabet, computers continue to confuse many of our customers.

Our support team are all very technically proficient and we asked them to let us in on their computer secrets and tricks!

The Virus Lab – What is Spyware?

Spyware is a type of Malware created to gain access to your personal information without your consent to send to third parties. Just as it sounds, Spyware essentially “spies” on the user for the hacker. Spyware programs can come in many various forms such as Trojan Horses, adware or tracking cookies.

The Virus Lab – What is a Rootkit?

Rootkits are malicious programs that are designed to allow continued access to your computer, while actively hiding themselves and other harmful programs or processes. Often loaded through Trojan Horses, rootkits start on your PC with “user” level access. Once in, they can spy on passwords and gain administrator level access. From this highest level of access to your PC, different executable files can be placed onto your PC thereby commanding it to run differently.
