Twin Cities PC Repair Blogs About Professional Virus Removal

December 06, 2019 - /PressAdvantage/ - Twin Cities PC Repair, a business based in Eagan, Minnesota, has added an informative post to their blog on the topic of dealing effectively with computer viruses. Having recently been awarded the 2019 Best of Eagan Award in the Computer Repair Service category, the company’s expertise in the field allows them to share information on a broad range of topics in the PC world.

In the article, Patrick Jensen of Twin Cities PC Repair compares computer viruses to human viruses and argues that it is important to not just stop viruses from infecting computers, but to clean up thoroughly so that they cannot cause more issues later. He points out that off-the-shelf antivirus products are excellent at finding viruses, but they are less efficient at fixing the problems viruses may have caused prior to being uncovered.

Antivirus products do their detection work mostly via three methods: by categorizing the actions that the code in the program drives as malicious or benign, inspecting file signatures against known virus signatures and by scanning for rootkits that interfere with or change how an operating system functions. When a virus is identified by an antivirus program, it will isolate it and delete it. However, if the virus has already mutated or installed itself into the operating system—for example, before it is found—it can do all kinds of damage.

In the blog Jensen makes an analogy between a person being sick and a computer system being infected with viruses. He says that if someone with a cyst consults a physician to get it removed, they may then go on to consult a specialist to check that the perhaps cancerous causes of the cyst are investigated and dealt with if necessary. Similarly, he maintains, a virus could re-infect the computer if its source is not dealt with.

It is important for businesses and individuals to be able to trust that they are safe from viruses and that any that infections are dealt with swiftly and completely. Jensen emphasize that, to ensure this, they would need to follow up any incidents of virus infection with a check up from a professional virus removal provider. Fortunately, Twin Cities PC Repair is able to take on such projects; they offer a specialist service in the Twin Cities and their surrounding areas, in addition to a wide variety of computer and tablet services. They are able to address both hardware and software problems for their customers.

It is the nature of computer viruses that they evolve and change. Jensen highlights that this makes it hard to deal with such infections, and this is why it is best to consult a professional when dealing with such situations. He points to a recent strain of malware, SquirtDanger, which let hackers take screenshots, capture personal passwords, download files, and empty cryptocurrency wallets. Another feature of modern viruses is that they can change computer settings, one common virus changes the DNS—this will make Google.com on your computer go to a different IP address. At the new location, cyber criminals might be waiting to steal personal data. To the user it looks exactly like Google, but it is unsafe. Getting rid of the virus infection will not automatically rid the system of these settings.

Jensen says his blogging on this subject is intended to spread an important message so people can be safer when they work on computers. He says, “It is important that if you detect a virus on your computer that you consult a professional. Your computer is vital to you, whether you use it for a business or personal use. We all know that there is so much on our computers that is crucial in our lives and businesses, so it is risky to simply trust antivirus software. Too much is at stake; sometimes the system might not be safe without a full reinstallation of the operating system. You need an expert to judge what is lurking there and how to make it safe.”

Elaborating further, Jensen says that keeping a computer free of viruses, spyware and other problems is not a task that should not be viewed in isolation. It is part of keeping a device, such as a computer or tablet, healthy. Likewise, Twin Cities PC Repair does not only offer services around virus removal and system restoration, they offer many other services to keep PCs and systems running smoothly. For example, they offer hardware and software installation services, helping customers choose and install the right software for their particular needs. Another service offered is a business-class data backup solution. The services offered come at reasonable prices, from computer repair to virus removal.

On streets of Tehran, relief for now at no wider conflict

Jan 18, 2020

TEHRAN, Iran — Iranian newspapers proclaimed the country's attack on U.S. forces in Iraq to be "a dark night for Americans," and Washington's "first admission of failure in history." On the bustling streets of Tehran, however, there was relief Thursday that neither side appeared primed for war. “War is not something like the ‘Call of Duty’ game," said Dara Shojaei, a 23-year-old architecture student. “It's not a game you can play to win. There's no winner.” But with the relief came some mixed feelings about how far Iran should go to avenge the killing of Revolutionary Guard Gen. Qassem Soleiman,...

Stocks rise as China confirms trade deal signing next week

Jan 18, 2020

NEW YORK — U.S stocks climbed in morning trading on Thursday as investors cheered confirmation from China that its top trade official will head to Washington next week to sign a preliminary trade deal. The “Phase 1” accord is the opening step on a possible path toward a broader agreement between the nations. President Donald Trump has said he will travel to Beijing after the initial signing to start the second stage of talks. Every major index is on track for a record as Wall Street distances itself from a bout of anxiety over the last week because of tensions...

Innovative fashion designers lead the way on sustainability

Jan 18, 2020

LONDON — Innovative fashion designers are turning to such things as horseradish and nettles to make sustainable clothing and accessories to the delight of a growing number of buyers. While more consumers are paying closer attention to how the production of goods impacts the environment, old habits die hard. A buy-and-toss mentality persists despite a boost from celebrities helping to drive the upcycle and vintage movements. Actress Maggie Q, who created an activewear line from recycled fabrics, is among activists who see plenty of room for improvement. She says she feels "sick about fast fashion.'' "You hear people say, 'Well,...

Space Force will start small but let Trump claim a big win

Jan 18, 2020

WASHINGTON — The Trump administration is celebrating the launch of Space Force, the first new military service in more than 70 years. In signing the 2020 National Defense Authorization Act that includes Space Force, Trump on Friday can claim a victory for one of his top national security priorities just two days after being impeached by the House. It is part of a $1.4 trillion government spending package — including the Pentagon's budget — that provides a steady stream of financing for Trump's U.S.-Mexico border fence and reverses unpopular and unworkable automatic spending cuts to defense and domestic programs. Space...

House passes $1.4T government spending bill amid impeachment

Jan 18, 2020

WASHINGTON — The Democratic-controlled House voted Tuesday to pass a $1.4 trillion government spending package, handing President Donald Trump a victory on his U.S.-Mexico border fence while giving Democrats spending increases across a swath of domestic programs. The hard-fought legislation also funds a record Pentagon budget and is serving as a must-pass legislative locomotive to tow an unusually large haul of unrelated provisions into law, including an expensive repeal of Obama-era taxes on high-cost health plans, help for retired coal miners, and an increase from 18 to 21 in the nationwide legal age to buy tobacco products. The two-bill package,...
