Tech Tip Today – Tips for spotting malware & deleting it.

If your computer is suddenly running slowly or not acting quite right you may have downloaded malware (virus) from the Internet.

Common signs of malware or computer virus’ include frequent pop up windows, tricky display ads with great sounding “click me” offers, the slowing down of your computer or system crashes. Bad software can even steal your data.
