At our Carlsbad, CA location, our turn-around on the vast majority of Virus Removal repairs is 1-2 business days, with same day service (if the computer gets to us in the morning) not uncommon. We are not aware of any brick and mortar computer repair store in San Diego, CA, or Carlsbad, CA that comes close to this turnaround time.
Remember, our Carlsbad store is just right over the Oceanside border, enabling us to conveniently service the greater North County area.
Our quick service, combined with a high satisfaction rate, is possible thanks to a specially designed Virus Removal training program developed by Chip over several years. Chip’s training helps our new employees to apply the industry’s best tools, along with a practical knowledge of how viruses work, to quickly and effectively remove virus infections.
How do I know if I have a Virus?
Microsoft Windows keeps getting more secure, thanks to constant Windows Updates from Microsoft. That means that these days only the best viruses are able to break Windows’ defenses. Modern day viruses often resemble Anti-Virus Programs or system utilities in an attempt to fool the user. The quickest way to determine if your computer is infected is to use our Free Diagnostic service - offered at our Carlsbad, CA location - but generally if your computer is running but you feel you have limited or reduced control of the operating system of programs, a malicious program may be a work.
Will I lose all my stuff?
No. We will not erase your data or re-install Microsoft Windows without contacting you. It is very rare that a malicious file such as a Virus caused irreversible harm to your data. In rare and extreme situations – for example, if your data is missing, moved, or encrypted – we offer Data Recovery at our Carlsbad, CA location.
What if you are not able to remove the Virus or other malicious files?
Our Free Diagnostic is designed to help you make an educated decision. We feel that customers are happiest when they know their options before making a purchase.
The vast majority of the time we are able to predict with confidence as to whether we will be able to remove a virus infection without significant changes to the computer’s operating system. If a Chip & Bytes technician feels that a Re-install of your computer’s Operating System is more appropriate, he or she will recommend this up front after your Free Diagnostic.
