Viruses can do all kinds of nasty things if they make their way into your computer, from bloating your operating system to hijacking your e-mail. However, many people don’t know that some viruses and malware can make your PC or laptop completely unusable! It’s called bricking because it more or less turns your system into a glorified paperweight or a brick that won’t even turn on. To throw salt in the wound, unbricking a system is extremely difficult and requires the knowledge and know-how of a certified PC Geek, but there’s no guarantee you’ll be able to recover your, documents, pictures and other important files if your system isn’t protected from bricking in the first place. Knowing when to call a pro for virus removal can be the best solution.
The best way to avoid having your device bricked is to protect yourself from malware and viruses in the first place. Work with a PC Geek technician to get your system up to speed with the best anti-virus and anti-malware software for you. A professional can guide you to an anti-virus software that won’t weigh down your system with excessive and unhelpful bloatware.
Protect yourself! Know the signs that indicate your system has fallen prey to a virus. If your system is running slower than usual or pop-up ads are showing up everywhere, your system could be weighed down by nefarious viruses and malware that could brick your device. Save yourself a headache; work with a professional virus removal service to get to the root of the problem before your problem becomes a brick.
