Viruses and spyware are at the forefront of many Macclesfield computer problems and it is indeed a nuisance to end up with a computer infected with spyware. One of the most prevalent problems at the moment are rogue anti-virus and spyware applications. The first sign you have been infected is the appearance of windows system error messages and pop ups informing you that your computer has been infected. This is usually followed by an offer to scan your computer and fix the problems for you. Once you take the offer of a scan the ploy to extract money from you begins.
