Hello everyone –
I can’t think of many things that upset me more than people taking advantage of other people for the sake of profit. And, this week I’ve seen more than my fair share of customers who’ve come into my Lenexa store with some nasty malware on their computers. If your computer has this pop up…. you have likely been a victim.
First few steps….
1) DO NOT PANIC
2) DO NOT CALL THEM
3) Call Mission Repair
While this may seem self serving… I can assure you if you read on you will understand that a moderately priced malware/virus removal service from Mission Repair or any local, trusted shop will save you hundreds of dollars. Not to mention, an education in what NOT TO DO and what NOT to download or click on!
While his face may look friendly, he’s a con artist, and scammer of the worst kind. These things happen typically when you install “free” software, and leading you to believe that they can make your computer 300% faster! Wrong… they are injecting malware that takes over your browser and will lock you out of your own computer. They have you hooked… and unfortunately, if you call them it can cost you hundreds, if not thousands of dollars over time. In reality they may have you on the hook every six months for a very, very long time.
The good news, is I’m happy to talk about this with anyone that will listen. While Mission Repair does charge a nominal fee for our malware and virus removal services, it’s literally less than 10% of what I’ve heard these scammers will charge you. The major difference is we will clean 100% of their programs and nasty malware from your computer vs just hiding it for a later date. We were able to successfully clean this computer (screenshot above) today by removing a nasty little program called “Shoppytool”. I won’t get super technical here but know that it took several hours to track down this specific malware issue and remove.
In the meantime, be safe online, and as the old saying goes… “if it sounds to good to be true, it probably is”.
Have a great day!
Hello friends- the weather has been a bit fickle out here in Kansas City. I’m not sure if mother nature has decided if it’s motorcycle riding weather nor not yet!
It was a beautiful day outside yesterday (even though it did snow earlier in the week) and it gave the gardeners a chance to get some much needed planting done in our front garden beds. It’s a nice Spring clean up that our new Mission Repair building needed and I think it’s going to look great when things start to grow!
Before yesterday, these areas in front of our windows were full of “junk” bushes that just looked terrible. I know that it’s probably not that important to you, but it gives us here at Mission Repair a little bit of pride and self worth coming into work each day 😉
Since we’re on the subject, it’s time to do a little Spring Cleaning of your own – on your computer! Did you know that we offer virus removal and electronics cleaning? I just had a customer tell us that he dropped a margarita on his new MacBook (which still worked by the way) but the keys were sticky. Yikes. Like really sticky. Units like this are handled in two ways:
1. We can clean the sticky mess out of the unit for a small labor fee.
2. We can replace the keyboard and any other components that might need to be replaced to get the unit functioning correctly again.
Apple laptop and *most* Windows laptop repairs are what I’m talking about. If you have a machine that’s running slow, having virus issues or if you have a sticky situation – you can have us at Mission Repair do a little Spring Cleaning for you. Give us a call 866-638-8402 if you have any questions! Thanks!
Take care, Ryan
