If your computer is running slow, freezing up, or giving you errors about low disk space, then a cleanup may be in order. Your computer may just be full of junk files and bloatware or even be infected with adware/malware or viruses.
No matter how careful you are, malware can often slip on to your computer unnoticed while online. Sometimes, it can happen while you aren’t looking. Viruses can infect your computer very easily by visiting the wrong webpage, even typing one wrong letter in the URL. Just scrolling past harmless looking advertisements on an otherwise safe page can be a virus in disguise. Malware can piggyback on a completely legitimate and necessary software update. Many free programs have extras, and sometimes those “extra” programs are not mentioned during install, and end up causing lots of problems.
If you think your computer has been infected, give us a call; we can definitely help.
*** Please note that while Cold Snap Technology does everything we can to keep all of your data intact, we can’t always restore data that has already been lost. If you lose files and pictures due to malware or viruses that are on your computer or by hard drive failure, they will be lost for good unless you have a backup. You should always make frequent backups of your data, especially when everything is going well. We know it can be a hassle and hard to remember to constantly be making backups, so we have automated backup services available, contact us if you are interested. ***
