Zeus Virus Removal

A new customer called me to say that his laptop was locked with a warning that he had a virus (Zeus virus) and it was playing a loud audio warning and displaying warning with a number to phone to have it removed.

I’m pretty sure that he didn’t have the Zeus Virus, he had some fake virus warning that is designed to lock you out until you call the fake tech support phone number to let them log in and sort out non-existent problems and charge a fortune for it.

His “free trial” of McAfee had expired, and after fixing the virus warning I recommended my combination of security software and did a full scan for him to ensure no infections remained.

 

If you have any type of virus warning on your computer, or thing you might be a target for fake tech support, please contact me on the numbers top-right of this page or via the Contact form on the right of the menu bar at the top of this page.
