Computer viruses, malware and spyware: is your computer at risk?
A recent article in the Redding Record Searchlight (Redding, California) highlights a key issue that also affects Austin-area small businesses: computer security.
Viruses, spyware and malware are the main culprits in terms of breaching your computer’s defenses and rendering it unusable, or at the very least, slow and inefficient.
Austin Mobile Computer Repair technicians have seen increasingly complex and sophisticated computer viruses work their way into computer systems. The solution is simple however: awareness, security, scanning and removal.
Another key point made in the article which all small businesses should consider is regular backups. Backing up your computer’s information means that even if a virus does damage your computer or your files, you can get it removed and handled AND restore your system to what it was before the malicious software attacked your system.
