Virus Removal/Security

From £35.00

PCs can be infected by an ever increasing number of Virus, Malware or Ransomware. Most of these are prevented or detected and removed by using good Anti-virus and Firewall software, scheduling regular scans and making sure that your operating system has all the correct patches and security updates installed.
However, sometimes they are able to get through even the best security. The kids downloaded something, someone used an infected usb stick, a downloaded application included malware which installed at the same time, the list of possibilities goes on.
This article from Malwarebytes Blog details what you can look out for when installing applications downloaded from the web and what the tell tale signs are that the application is bundled with tracking software, browser hijacks and other malware (PUPs).
Lamas Design and Technology can deal with infected systems and return them to you in working order.
Lamas Design can also recommend and install Antivirus and/or Firewall applications suitable for your system to help you to combat future infection.
There are many different applications available. Some are free, some have an annual licence fee.

Web Development

Lamas Design has previously worked with clients to set up web sites using the hosting company templates. The Beauty Salon and Precious Pup are examples of these. Whilst they were adequate for the companys concerned, I decided that I would like to delve deeper into the coding side. I have a background in programming and used VB.net, VB6 and VBA, MS Access, creating the database structure and designing the user interface. I am currently working with HTML, CSS, JavaScript and Jquery. I also have a good knowledge of Bootstrap.
