Virus  / Spyware / Trojan / Adware / Malware  Removal

Today's computer users face a plethora of Internet hosted threats against their computers and personal privacy. Back in the day, attackers were satisfied to wreck havoc on your machine with viruses. These days, the method of choice is to infect your machine with Spyware, Trojans, Malware and Phishing programs aimed to invade your privacy, serve you popup ads, and even worse to steal such critical data as your personal banking information.

Many of today's threats are silent and sneaky, running in the background without your knowledge, siphoning off your personal information and making it available to the intruders.

Another critical problem facing computer users is the real threat of having your compromised machine become part of a "bot" network. These compromised machines are pooled together by the hackers and rented out to be used to attack other computer networks.

Countryside Computer can thoroughly scan your machine, using various tools to rid your system of unwanted and dangerous rogue programs.

Many times a simple CPU, hard drive or memory upgrade can give your older machine a new lease on life for a fraction of the cost of a new system. Let us evaluate your current machine and make recommendations for cost effective upgrades that give you the best bang for your buck.

We can also help when it comes time for a major upgrade of your software. We can provide the software or install that which you have purchased elsewhere.

Automated Backup Solutions

The universal sad truth is only a very, very small percentage of users backup their precious data. Be it family photos, budget information, word processing documents, E-mails, or your huge music collection, virtually everyone who uses a computer has valuable information on their hard drives.

Even with the excellent reliability of today's hard drives, mechanical or electrical failure or outside influences like surges or lightning can instantly kill a hard drive. If you do not have a current backup, all that irreplaceable information may be lost forever.

Let Countryside Computer set you up with an affordable automated backup solution that is both economical and unobtrusive as it keeps a vigil over your data, providing a current backup in the event your hard drive crashes.

We have installed this system in numerous customer machines and use it ourselves as part of a comprehensive backup strategy.


Hard Drive Data Recovery

So, you didn't heed our warning above and now your hard drive is broken? Only now do you really realize just how much valuable information is on the drive and there you are without a current backup.

Well, it is likely we can help. Utilizing some of the industries most powerful data recovery tools we have had excellent success in recovering all or a good portion of a customers data from their failed hard drives.

Not long ago we were able to recover a couple thousand photos for a young lady who had spent many months in Spain. She had taken thousands of digital photos and, of course, had no backup whatsoever when her laptop hard drive died suddenly. After many hours of running, our tools were able to restore 100% of her previously lost photos.

We can do the same for you. If we can't recover a reasonable amount of your data, you don't pay for the recovery service. Simple as that.
