Computer Virus Removal
Virus Detection | Eradication | Prevention
Every network, system and computer needs to have a three part plan implemented to help prevent, stop and recover from virus and spyware infections and potential damage. First, every system should have antivirus software installed and properly maintained. This means regular virus updates as well as being properly configured on the server and workstations. Your antivirus software should scan every file stored on every storage device on a scheduled basis and should scan every bit of information before it is saved to a drive or brought into the network.
Remember that antivirus software is only as good as its last update. Any new or unknown viruses will not be detected and could cause damage. To protect from new viruses, you need to have a detection tool in place. An integrity verification tool can be used to monitor when files change. However, for the integrity tool to be effective, you will need to run it against your system before you are infected to establish a baseline against which to compare all future scans.
