If you live in the Kansas City area and have a computer virus, Prairie Star Technology is an expert at computer virus removal in Olathe.

Computer viruses come in many shapes and styles.  We have recently seen an increase in the number of viruses that hold your computer hostage and demand a ransom to unlock access to your computer and its data.  While Cryptolocker is a new one, we continue to see the FBI and ICE computer viruses.  They claim that if you don’t pay or attempt to remove the virus, they will erase your data.  Cryptolocker is nasty because it encrypts your data and unfortunately there is no way to get your files back unless you have a backup of them.

There are a couple primary reasons that these viruses continue to thrive and infect millions of computers.  One reason is that users aren’t applying important software security patches when prompted, i.e., Acrobat, Java and Flash.  Another common theme is the use of an ineffective anti-virus program, many of which are offered free to users.  If a user can keep up on patches and use a paid, full-service internet security suite that is set up by a professional, the odds of becoming infected drop dramatically.  One more thing we see is users checking their email through a website like Google, Yahoo or their internet service provider rather than using an email client like Outlook or Thunderbird.  By using an email client, you gain greater control in the effective filtering of malicious emails.
