PLEASE BEWARE OF THE FOLLOWING VIRUS SCAMS:
MrPC AFP Virus removal
***Important if you ever encounter any ransomware requesting money Do Not pay as this is ransomware***
AUSTRALIAN FEDERAL POLICE (AFP) VIRUS: This is fairly malicious and well written virus, which attempts to hold the computer owner to ransom, claiming you have to pay 100 Euro via funds transfer/UKash to regain use of your computer again. This may, or may not, hijack your webcam also in an effort to persuade the user of its legitimacy. MrPC can have this virus and all associated remnants of it removed in no-time, ensuring the integrity of your personal data whilst also offering a permanent solution to ensure it doesn't happen again.
MICROSOFT CALL SCAM: Please be aware of company’s claiming to be from Microsoft wanting remote access to your computer. Microsoft will NEVER call you, and NEVER ask for any personal details, let alone access to your PC. You should immediately decline any offer similar to the above, and report it to the relevant authorities.
RANSOM-WARE: Based on the same premise as the above AFP virus, this virus infects and encrypts all the data on the computer with a password then it is held for ransom unless a fee is paid. MrPC can decrypt the password for the encrypted data, however, this takes time. In worst case situations, it can be done, but the best solution is always being proactive, and that is regularly backing up your critical and personal data. Feel free to give us a call if you need advising on how to go about this, or perhaps need a tailored solution provided to you.
Last, but certainly not the least or least-widespread, is ANY SOFTWARE that requests you to pay a fee to have your computer cleaned/optimised/registry cleaned. These are tasks that can be performed without paying a random fee to a non-legitimate software vendor.
