Computer viruses can really hurt small business users. Often, the virus presents as some other problem. This causes a call to our Help Desk. It is only after some research that we find a virus to be the cause.
The cost of not having up to date virus protection software can be high. We charge for work we undertake to fix up problems caused by viruses. This is only fair given that the cost to us can be hours of lost Help Desk time.
It is important to small business software users to protect their businesses. Virus protection software is like insurance – you cannot want it after the loss has been incurred.
We repeat our virus warning advice regularly.
