Anti-Virus Programs Only Do Half the Job

Once your computer has been infected with a virus, it’s no longer your computer. After removing it with your trusty anti-virus software, you’re often left with lingering side-effects. The symptoms vary, but the bottom line is the same: Your computer doesn’t work the way it used to.  Your favorite programs crash frequently, your registry entries are a mess and even your “Cute Kittens of the Month” desktop wallpaper is mysteriously missing.

Why did this happen? You’ve already removed the virus. Shouldn’t the havoc it caused go away, along with it? What about the damage caused to your system? Isn’t it simply erased, along with the malware that caused it?

Technically, your computer might no longer be infected, but that doesn’t mean it’s error-free.

“…Simply removing a virus can actually harm your system.”

A Closer Look into Virus Removal

Anti-virus programs can only try to heal, quarantine or delete infected files. Anti-virus programs face a dilemma when dealing with a virus that infects your system files. Where normally they might delete or quarantine the infected file, since it’s a system file removing it might have adverse side effects on your operating system. Yet, sometimes that’s exactly what they do: delete or quarantine infected system files. This can result in your system becoming unstable! Yes, simply removing a virus can actually harm your system.

So what can you do? You’ll need to repair and replace those missing and damaged Windows files.

How to Repair Virus Damage

A clean reinstallation of Windows is often the recommended solution when your computer doesn’t work properly anymore. However, a proper reinstallation of your entire ‘however many gigabytes’ operating system is a time-consuming task that involves lengthy back-ups, long installations, and days to find and install all your favorite applications again.

So what’s the alternative to this long, unnecessary process?  You’re probably thinking about calling a tech-savvy friend or shelling out the big bucks for a professional. But what if your friend is busy and you’re too broke to pay for a technician? Or really need your computer fixed NOW, not in the weeks it’ll likely take them?

Is there a program that can do all this stuff for you, automatically? And what if this happens again?

You definitely need a program that’ll perform a fresh revival of your operating system for you, whenever you need or want it. A software that can automatically repair and reinstall your Windows operating system, without any loss of data or applications; your settings stay the same and automatic passwords still work.

A DIY back-up and reinstallation of your operating system can take at least 5 hours to a full day(!), so you should look for an automatic tool that’s very easy and very fast.

End result –A PC that is quickly revived, error-free and stable, safely and securely.
