What is Malware?
Malware comes in many different forms including Viruses, Trojans, Worms, and Rootkit’s. Anything that can disrupt the normal activities of a system, turn a system into a bot net zombie, or steal information, can be considered Malware.
Do you think your PC might be infected?
Is your computer running sluggish? Directed to sites that don’t seem legitimate? Is a shady looking antivirus company telling you that you are infected and need to buy their software to remove the infection? This is called ”ransom ware” and it is very common. The “anti-virus” is actually a virus.
*Some Examples of Ransomware* These look authentic, but they are not and often represent a white collar extortion racket by criminal enterprises
“Malware” or various types of “Ransomware” will remain on your computer until you pay the extortionist’s fee, remove it yourself, a long and tedious process, or hire our services at Peace of Mind Computers. We will fix the problem in a timely, cost effective manner.

This is important because Malware must be removed promptly, and in its entirety, because the longer it remains on a system, the longer outside parties have potential access to your personally identifiable information. This fraudulently obtained information can be used for identity theft that can cost you money and, possibly years of frustration, trying to clear your credit. So, if your computer is behaving strangely, or you are asked to buy a antivirus you don’t remember installing it may have contracted a potentially harmful piece of Malware. At Peace of Mind Computers can help you fix your problem. With our malware removal service we can remove all variations of Malware including Viruses, Trojans, Worms, Rootkits, Spyware, Browser Hijacks, Redirects and any other malware related problems.
