OnlineVirusRepair.com Reports Computer Virus Attacks and Email Scams Set to Increase As Online Holiday Shopping Sales Top $1 Billion
Experts stress the importance of having a clean computer before doing any online shopping. Online Computer Support company OnlineVirusRepair.com is offering a checkup at no charge.
San Luis Obispo, CA (PRWEB) December 05, 2012
According to Internet analytics research firm ComScore, online shoppers spent over $1 billion on Black Friday alone, up from $816 million on the corresponding day last year. ComScore analysts also predict that online sales for Cyber Monday could reach $1.5 billion. That means holiday shoppers are taking to the Internet to find great deals more than ever before - but not without risk. The increased internet activity means consumers are more at risk of being victimized by vicious computer viruses, malware and email scams as hackers and cyber criminals look to take advantage of unsuspecting customers.
Dan Steiner, Co-founder of OnlineVirusRepair.com states, “The best offense is a good defense. That means people should have their virus software up to date and have their computer checked out before they go shopping. That's why we offer computer users a complete system check by one of our highly qualified technicians at no charge. The check up includes software and hardware diagnostics, virus and spyware checks and expert recommendations. Cyber criminals and identity thieves are looking for ways to victimize innocent people. The best thing shoppers can do is be proactive and speak with a professional.”
Customers can contact an Online Virus Repair technician by visiting their website and clicking on the live chat button or calling them at (866) 240-9755. Should a customer's computer be infected, the technician will provide a full diagnostic along with an estimate before proceeding. In most instances both virus removal and computer tuneups can be remotely removed in 30 minute or less.
Steiner goes on to say, “Online shopping should be fun and convenient, but the reality is many people fall prey to viruses, scams and malware. If you're unsure about a website or suspicious email in your inbox you should probably avoid it. Most of the new viruses floating around look like legitimate antivirus programs, but they are in fact fake. We can generally remove fake antivirus software in under 30 minutes. “
