Virus Removal Service


Virus removal service at Flash Mobile Computers (also called a Tune-Up) is an involved process consisting of several steps:

  • Removal of viruses and spyware
  • Repairing damage to operating system
  • Repairing damaged applications
  • Restoring default user and file permissions
  • Reset web browser security settings and removing problem Add-ons
  • Installing Windows updates • Installing application updates (Flash, Java, etc.)
  • Physically cleaning out the computer

The important thing to remember in virus removal is that the goal is to locate the source of the infection and not the symptoms. That is a common mistake made when removing tougher problems; the antivirus program sees the files created as a result of a virus and removes them only to have them come back again and again because the source is still present. As such, sometimes several general removal tools are required as well as specialized programs designed for a specific type of virus (e.g. TDSSKiller for the TDSS rootkit).
