VIRUS & MALWARE (malicious software) REMOVAL.
By design, viruses and other malware try to avoid detection and removal in order to maximize its effectiveness. Many new viruses and variants are reported on a daily basis and therefore can be difficult to detect and remove. We run at least two different products to detect and aid removal of infections and further more use our experience to manually remove some threats. In rare cases, viruses can re-infect the machine as they have inbuilt stealth capabilities to avoid detection. Due to this, we can not fully guarantee that the infected computer is 100% clean. If the same virus or malware infection that was detected on initial investigation is reported to us within 3 days from us returning the computer to you, then we will re-investigate this further without charge. If necessary, we may have to involve 3rd party virus software vendors to assist in its detection and removal by submitting data containing configuration information of the infected machine. Failure to report this re-infection to us within this time will result in a further full repair fee being charged for removal. This remains at our discretion.
