virus cleaning on a mac (but i thought macs don’t get viruses)

virus cleaning on a mac

BUT BUT i thought macs don’t get viruses! is one of those phrases that if i could get a nickel every time i heard that, i would have a lot of nickels! or not!

reality is that a lot of people are surprised to hear that macs get some kind of viruses, because that is one of those myths (and sales points) people know about macs in general. people are sold on it from long time ago and rightfully so. Because the statement is kind of true in a way.

when someone says macs do not get viruses they mean mac OS or macs operating system can not be infected with a virus. that is almost entirely true. because mac os is built(unlike windows) in a different way. where pretty much all programs run independently of operating system. they are like little separate entities running their little scripts and they don’t rely on other programs or operating system to do it. they use operating system as foundation only and thats why it is difficult to put a virus on mac which would affect the way computer works as a whole. so usually there is no need of virus cleaning on a mac at all. virus cleaning on a mac

windows is actually opposite. windows runs as if the whole world is a bubble and everything is connected inside with each other. all programs are connected with windows as if they had umbilical cord connected to the mother for survival. and therefore by injecting a code into a system like that it is easy to affect the whole operating system and make things crash or whatever else viruses do that will affect everything.

however in todays day an age things are different. and the main difference is that word virus used to describe malicious programs in the past. has now evolved into many different other words. like malware, adware, ransomware, cryptoware, etc etc. they all do different things and thats why they have different funny names.

now lets get to the actual topic of this post! About time right!? the picture i have posted above is from a virus scan on an imac that customer brought in. it was infected pretty heavily. if you opened a browser, first of all you would see some strange looking home page, that sort of looks like google but its not. then you see all kinds of ads popping up, then you type a web address into a window but you are taken to completely different website! whats going on?! well you need a virus cleaning on a mac. thats whats going on!

most of the time these days people get what’s called adware on their computers. they are kinda like viruses but they are not! i call them legal viruses. they are legal because they don’t have any characteristics of a virus, they even have a special term to be called- PUP or potentially unwanted programs. they don’t do any harm to your computer but they sure are annoying. on mac you see them in forms of mymaccleaner, mackeeper, shopping buddy, etc etc. what they do is they pretend to be an antivirus or a shopping companion or something else, they are hard to turn off, they offer you to buy something and so on. but they don’t steal your information nor do they harm your computer, they just annoy and trash your computer hoping you will buy something or they will take you to a site they advertise so you can buy something there!

anyhow that is what you get on a mac (as well as on pc) nowadays! they are common, they hijack your browsers they drive you crazy and thats when you know you need a virus cleaning on a mac!

Hello my name is Eddie when i opened my first computer store, i did it because i was looking around and saw that people didnt have a proper place to repair their computers. most places were taking days ot repair things for reasons other than waiting for parts to ship. They were just taking forever because they didnt know how to fix computers or how to do it quickly. also some of them thought the longer they fix computer the more money they could charge a customer. and i was absolutely horrified by these stories. geek squad as a biggest computer repair service provider, ships computers out and people have to wait 2 weeks to get it back. who wants to do that? thats why i set out on a mission to change it because i learned if i focus on solving your needs as customer first it would work best for everyone. i customer would get their computer back fast and i would get to go home early!! thats how much concept was born and now its a reality! if you want your pc or macbook fixed proerly and fast. come visit us! we're open! also in my free time i get out of town and shoot landscape photography! feel free to stop by our shop to see my artwork!
