Virus Removal | Home Helptech

We all worry about viruses, both the damage they do to our own computers and the risk that we cross infect computers belonging to friends, family and business acquaintances. A Hacker can use a port scanner to search the network for a computer infected with a Trojan and gain access without the users permission. They generally find holes in your operating system so it is a good idea to always install the newest updates provided by your vendor.

Some of the older security standards, such a the one known as "WEP" are now easily bypassed, so we would recommend that you use a stronger standard. If you have a fairly recent laptop, there is a reasonable chance that it will have a wireless networking receiver built in.
