Viruses & Malware

Pc’s In Paradise can remove most Viruses and Malware with programs designed specifically for this purpose. If you think your machine is infected, don’t wait to get help. The longer you wait the worse it will get in which case a repair turns into a rebuild. See tech support page for recommendations about removal of malicious software.

How do viruses and malware get onto your computer? You often install it yourself.

When you download that free software program you usually have to sign an End User License Agreement (EULA). Most people click on the “accept” button without reading the EULA. EULAs are usually extremely long, filled with legal jargon that people rarely read. Often they will tell you that by accepting this free software, you agree to let them install other programs on your computer or share information about you with others.

When you “accept” the free software, you’ve accepted the conditions of using it, which includes permitting them to install this “malware” on your computer. If you uninstall the malware, the free software may no longer work. Be careful when installing free programs. A good rule of thumb: If you don’t need it, don’t install it.

The following should help avoid Viruses and Malware

NEVER Update ADOBE FLASH PLAYER from a webpage message that suddenly appears or a popup that appears on your desktop. Always go to www.adobe.com, click on menu and then click Adobe Flash Player at the bottom of your screen.
NEVER Update JAVA from a webpage message that suddenly appears or a popup that appears on your desktop. Always go to www.java.com to get the update.
NEVER Install a media player that a website says is necessary in order to view a video
NEVER Install a windows media player update unless you are 100% certain that it came from Microsoft. Some companies use “windows” as a name in order to trick you into installing malicious programs.
NEVER Install programs without reading the EULA (End User License Agreement).
NEVER Install a program unless you are absolutely sure of its origin.
Software and Hardware Upgrades

PC’s In Paradise can make recommendations on whether you should upgrade your current computer or simply purchase a new one. That is a personal decision but it depends on a number of factors. How old is your computer? What specialty software do you have installed. OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) in most cases cannot be transferred to the new machine.

You must re-purchase the software. Many times the software costs as much or more than the new computer. Retail purchased software, on the other hand, can be installed on the new machine, provided it is compatible with your new operating system. If you are upgrading the hardware (more memory, larger hard drive, better video card, better sound card, etc.) it can usually be done cheaper than purchasing a new machine. Again, you must consider the age of the machine.

Operating System Reinstallation

In some cases it may be necessary to rebuild the software in a computer due to damage incurred by malicious software, file corruption or hardware issues (hard drive failure). Though rare it can happen. Pc’s In Paradise can totally rebuild the software in your computer and restore to factory specifications.

Data Recovery

There is nothing worse than having your computer crash and for your files to be inaccessible. We can retrieve files on failed drives more than 95% of the time. For the 5% we can’t recover we have recommendations for recovering that data as well.
