Top Malware Removal related questions

Yes. When posting a task, simply mention you need this specific service. Taskers skilled at this particular job will reach out with free quotes. Airtasker can connect you with specialists great at doing seemingly rare and obscure jobs, like offering the best WordPress malware removal services. Be as specific as possible on your task, and you might be surprised—the right Taskers could get in touch in the span of a few minutes. 

Yes, you should still take the necessary precautions against malware. Hackers may not target small businesses specifically, but they do cast a wide net. Some hackers can even make money from seemingly insignificant information, such as your contact details, medical information, and financial records. Hackers can sell this information to other hackers who can then find creative ways to extort money from you.  

You should never ignore malware, even if it’s your PC or personal Mac that gets infected. At the very least, malware can slow down your internet speeds, but there are many other ways malware can harm you if it isn’t removed. Malware can email copies of itself to all your contacts under your name, and your reputation can be tarnished. Some malware can even allow hackers to take control of your device and steal all your sensitive information.

Apart from always updating your operating system, firewall, and antivirus software, don’t click on random ads on websites. Never share sensitive data with anyone, and don’t download software, apps, or content from questionable sources. You should also avoid opening emails or attached files from unknown contacts. If you get an email from your bank or another service provider, call their customer service to verify its authenticity before opening it.  

That was true back when PC users outnumbered Mac users by a wide margin. In the past, hackers found it more profitable to create malware exclusively for PCs simply because there were far more PCs than Macs. These days, there are as many Macs as PCs that people use for working, shopping, and banking online. For this reason, hackers have now created malware for Macs. Thankfully, there are also Mac malware removal tools to counter them.

Ransomware is a type of malware (“malicious software”) that can be very difficult and costly to remove. After infecting your PC or Mac, ransomware “locks” your device, preventing you from using any of its functions or accessing your files. Ransomware can include a prompt that says you can only unlock your device if you deposit money or cryptocurrency to the hacker’s bank account—hence the name.

What do malware removal services include?

Malware removal services include all the necessary tasks to determine if your device has malware, remove the malware, and protect your device from future attacks. This service can include checking for any suspicious activity caused by malware, deleting unsafe programs, and installing anti-malware software.

Precautionary steps 

If you suspect your device has malware, disconnect it from the internet. You can do this by turning off its WiFi or simply not turning on your device. Use your phone or another device to get on Airtasker. This way, you can prevent the malware from spreading through your home or office network, or doing more damage to your PC or Mac. If you need a temporary workstation, you can hire someone to assemble another PC for you. You can also take this opportunity to have other appliances fixed, like your office coffee maker.  

Troubleshooting for malware

Once you’ve booked a Tasker, they can begin the service by looking for the usual signs of malware, such as: 

  • Significant internet slowdown

  • Significant decrease in battery life (for laptops)

  • Apps turning off or updating by themselves

  • Device crashes or reboots

  • Files or apps now inaccessible or asking for passwords to access

  • Sudden changes to your browser’s home page

  • Pop-up ads for inappropriate websites or content

Does your device show any of these signs? Then your Tasker can start tracing the malware program’s probable source. Malware almost always makes its way into your device through the internet. In other instances, malware can invade your device via infected USB storage devices. 

 

Your Tasker can inspect your browser history to check for any suspicious websites. They can also check for any unusual processes or apps running in the background. What’s more, the specialist can check and scan USB memory sticks or storage devices that were connected to your device.    

Removing the malware

Your Tasker can do all the necessary updates, restart your device, and run a scan. A malware scanning and removal tool from a trusted anti-malware publisher can help remove the malicious program. The specialist can also clear your browser’s cache as part of the removal process. 

Backing up data

Suppose your Tasker fails to remove the malware after performing all the necessary updates and scans. In that case, they may resort to erasing and reformatting your hard drive. With your approval, your Tasker can temporarily store all your important data onto an external hard drive. They can then reformat your device’s hard drive and reinstall its operating system. 

Your Tasker will then erase all copies of your data once they’ve been restored on your device. Once completed, they can ensure your firewall and security settings are updated and your most commonly used, trusted apps are restored on your device. Your Tasker may also recommend the appropriate software and tools you can buy or subscribe to for protecting your device from future malware attacks.
