Malware is the umbrella name for various different types of malicious software including:
... and others.
It can be relatively innocuous (perhaps only displaying extra adverts on your screen, or changing your home page in your browser) or much more serious (it might attempt to monitor your computer activity, steal your passwords, take money from your bank account, etc). In some cases, ransomware can even stop you from being able to access your files, and then money is demanded to regain access.
In short, malware is bad. And you don’t want it. It's one of the most common causes of your Mac computer running poorly.
Luckily Mac computers get very few viruses, as Apple have built a lot of protection into their operating system, but Macs are not immune to everything.
TekWizard can search for and destroy Mac viruses and other malware remotely. This means that you don't need to pay any call-out charges, and you don't need to take your computer in to a shop. We use our remote IT support to install software (the software itself is free) which will watch for and destroy malware on an on-going basis.
This service costs only £40 and should take around an hour. If it takes longer, I charge nothing more.
