Catching a virus or malware isn’t that hard. There’s a selection of new viruses that are constantly surfacing and adapting, much like viruses of the body. However, in the case of malware, it’s human beings that are adapting it on purpose in order to make it harder for your security to track it and push it away before it can infiltrate your system.
What’s more is that most folks don’t really understand malware or viruses, other than they’re bad for your computer. However, there’s much more nuance to them. And understanding them is key to helping you prevent them in the future. Viruses and malware, as you likely already know, can be installed on your computer when you’re not even aware it’s happening. This virus then functions by inserting malicious code that can monitor and manipulate your online activity with ease.
While some malware or viruses may not seem like too big of a deal and might only cause minor hiccups while you use your computer, they’re very rarely not used for except sinister means. For example, even if it’s not crashing your computer, it may be used to get your personal information and steal your identity or current credit card information. Therefore, there is never a time where you should ignore a potential virus or malware living on your machine.
If you think you’ve been made a victim of a malware or virus infection, reach out to us right away. We can provide a full diagnostic that allows us to find any causes of irregular activity on your machine so that we can pin-point and fix the problem, even if it’s not being caused by any potential malware. Ensure your safety and the safety of your computer and information today. Schedule an appointment with us now.

  •   Great service. My 7-year-old laptop finally kicked the bucket for good after many near-death experiences. I decided to get a new laptop but save the old hard drive. I asked Pleasanton Computer Repair if they could first check the hard drive to make sure there were no physical/electrical issues and the data was uncorrupted, and if the hard drive was fine, just move it into an external case for me. If the data was corrupted, I requested that they attempt to recover it. Brought the laptop in, got an email 2 days later that it was ready to pick up. Data was fine, hard drive was in an external case, brought it home & plugged it into my new computer and it worked just fine. Very reasonable price, did not try to add unnecessary charges, friendly, fast, and effective. Highly recommended.

    SUMMARY: fast, affordable, effective, honest. Great repair shop.

  •   Fixed the MacBook Air in the time promised and at low cost. So glad we bypassed the official Apple channels where there was a two-week wait to just bring it in. Will definitely use them again! Nice and friendly local shop.

      I had a dead laptop, and Pleasanton Computer Repair's proximity and his reviews helped me choose them for help. The quotes up front were simple, and they were pleasant and professional to deal with. For Covid safety, they require appointments to ensure one customer at a time. The one drawback was that they could not identify the problem with the tools available there and would need to send it to a lab in San Jose at additional cost. The tech was able to assure me the hard drive was not damaged, however, so I was able to transfer files myself by moving the drive to a case and connecting it as an external drive.

      Karla is the best. Very professional and provided the best advice for me and my Mac, even though that meant sending me to the Apple store.

    Will certainly use them for any issues in the future. It's difficult to find trustworthy businesses these days. Thanks Pleasanton Computer Repair!!

  •   Withdrawing my very positive review of Dec 5.  HP computer was hacked again in a few days.  Whatever they did it did not protect in the future days.  Had it repaired by a private party who installed protection software and has not been hacked in 3 weeks

    thumb Jerry M.

      They fixed my computer issues without hassling me to buy a new computer. Honest technicians that explained the problem, which I super appreciate.
