Online Safety

What do I do if I think I have a virus?

Web browserIf you think you have a virus on your computer, you need to run a virus check as promptly as possible.

As well as attempting to prevent viruses from finding their way on to computers, most anti-virus software also allows you to run checks to see if your computer is clean or infected.

If a virus is found on your computer, the software should recommend an action to take – either ‘quarantining’ or removing the virus in question.
