Computer Virus Removal Wandsworth

This computer virus removal job from Wandsworth SW18 was for a Dell Latitude laptop. The virus infected laptop had Windows 7 Home Premium installed. It was being used for a business in Wandsworth. The client wanted us to collect and drop the laptop from his premises in Wandsworth, SW18 and do the virus removal for him. The client complained that the computer had started giving problems and was extremely slow, a sign of virus infection. Start-up time was more than 2 minutes. As soon as he would open the browser a lot of pop-ups would open automatically. He was also having problems in his business software. Also, the computer was freezing every now and then. We diagnosed the computer and found out a lot of viruses and malwares. We cleaned up all the viruses. We also cleaned all the dodgy and irrelevant programs from the start-up. After virus clean-up, the start-up time came down to just 47 seconds. The client was able to use his computer without any problems.
