Caution:
Beware of any repair service that tells you "we need to reformat your hard disk to get rid of the virus". This is the easiest way to remove a virus, but it is the most devastating to the computer owner. This method also requires zero technical skill to do. If you encounter a repair service that offers virus removal service for a fixed price, and they suggest reformatting your hard drive, beware! They are fixing the problem in the fastest way that they can to maximize profits, but this will cause you to loose all your data on the hard disk, and require hours or days of effort to re-install your software and configure the computer the way that it was before the virus problem occurred. We would do this only as a last resort, because the result is so inconvenient for the customer. Many virus problems can be cured with a less drastic approach.
