Educate yourself on "Misleading Applications", “Rogue Software” and “Rogue Anti-Virus” programs.

Have you ever seen a strange security message pop up like an advertisement while you're surfing the web? Have you seen an unexpected balloon message appear from an unknown program on your system, telling you that you’re infected with a new threat? These are common tactics used by a type of program called a "Misleading Application", “Rogue Software” or “Rogue Anti-Virus”. These programs typically sneak onto their victims’ systems while they surf the web, masquerade as a normal Microsoft Windows alert, or otherwise trick people into downloading them onto their computer. Once installed, misleading applications exaggerate or make false claims about the security status or performance of your system, then promise to solve these bogus problems if you pay them.

TKS Computer Solutions can remove these malicious applications and viruses from your computer. For more information, call (814) 834-7991 or come to our store at 21 North Saint Marys Street, St. Marys, PA .

Below, you will find links to information that will help to become informed on the different types of misleading applications, how a computer becomes infected and how to prevent infections to your computer.

Anti-Virus Programs

IMPORTANT! Please Read:

Only install trusted and well known programs. The programs listed below are free, safe, and effective anti-virus applications and tools.

Do not attempt to run more than one anti-virus program at a time on your computer. Antivirus programs operate in a way in which they will conflict with each other and can make your computer run very slow. Always uninstall the current antivirus program (even if it is expired) before installing the new one. However, you can safely run more than one anti-spyware or anti-malware program at the same time.

Make certain to allow your anti-virus program (and Windows Update) to download and install scheduled updates. This will assure that your computer has protection from the most recent threats.

Free Anti-Malware and Anti-Spyware Program Links

IMPORTANT! Please, read.

Only install trusted and well known programs. The programs listed below are free, safe, and effective anti-malware and anti-spyware applications and tools.

There are hundreds of harmful misleading, fake, or rogue applications that will make attempts to install onto your computer by tricking the user. Please educate yourself, so it does not happen to you.

Whether you know it or not your computer is always at risk of becoming infected with viruses, worms, trojans, rootkits, dialers, spyware, and malware that are constantly evolving and becoming harder to detect and remove. Only the most sophisticated anti-malware techniques can detect and remove these malicious programs from your computer.

Spybot Search & Destroy

Spybot - Search & Destroy

Spybot - Search & Destroy detects and removes spyware, a relatively new kind of threat not yet covered by common anti-virus applications. Spyware silently tracks your surfing behaviour to create a marketing profile for you that is transmitted without your knowledge to the compilers and sold to advertising companies. If you see new toolbars in your Internet Explorer that you haven't intentionally installed, if your browser crashes inexplicably, or if your home page has been "hijacked" (or changed without your knowledge), your computer is most probably infected with spyware. Even if you don't see the symptoms, your computer may be infected.
