Virus Removal: Online Solution vs. Computer Shop

A Plus Computers updates the age old question which is better; Hunting for a virus removal program or taking your computer to the computer shop for virus removal?

The Online Solution

There are hundreds if not thousands of programs out there that claim to be able to remove virus and malware from computers. Some of them do a great job while others leave a lot to be desired. One problem with trying to find an online solution to virus and malware issues is the gap in quality. Even when you find a good program, you have to install it. If you already have an antiviral program in place that is expired or is not doing its job, the two programs may fight.

Each may see the other as a virus, and that is a headache. Then there are problems that involve making sure that the new program is installed correctly. The weak link in viral protection programs is the fact that they need to be updated constantly. If a virus is not recognized, it is often not seen as a threat. There are programs out there that can evaluate program behavior, but those are usually costly and may require a service. If you are able to find a good program how do you make sure it worked. What all of this boils down to is work, and a lot of it.

The Computer Shop

When you bring your computer into a computer shop, most times it will receive a free diagnostic evaluation. They have tools and programs at their disposal that will not only remove virus or malware, but also it will check to make sure that the program is completely removed.
