Virus and Malware Removal
Keeping You a Step Ahead of Hackers, Trojans, Sinister Software.
Criminals and hackers will never stop innovating new methods for spreading malware, ransomware and other viruses that can cost our clients’ time, money and cause system-wide instability. This is why we need to be even smarter – and innovate ways to both prevent and solve issues as they arise.
How can Concise help you win the fight against hackers?
The best way to help protect yourself from computer viruses, malware or adware of any type is to keep your Operating System regularly up to date and avoid malicious websites.

To identify what’s plaguing your system we scan your entire computer using professional-grade software to isolate and safely remove all viruses.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Can I get a virus on my Apple/Mac product?
Yes. While it’s a less common occurrence than on the Microsoft Windows operating system, Apple computers are susceptible to viruses.
Q: How did I get this nasty software?
Sometimes, it’s as simple as a misclick while you’re browsing the Internet or opening a link in an email. It could also be a security vulnerability in your operating system or some other piece of software.
Q: Should I change my password after a security breach?
Yes, absolutely! In rare cases, the virus or malware will include a keylogger, which is a scary piece of software that logs every single character that you type on your keyboard. Keyloggers are used in identity theft and this is one of the many reasons why we recommend immediate password changes in the event of a security breach. We are also a huge fan of two-factor authentication (2FA), also known as multi-factor authentication (MFA).
Q: How can I prevent this from happening in the future?
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Prevention is a multi-pronged effort, consisting of the following list, coupled with a little dose of common sense and extra caution while browsing the Internet and checking email:
- Anti-virus software
- Anti-malware software
- Network intrusion prevention
- Web browser choices (we recommend Google Chrome)
