Cryptowall 3.0 Beats Trend Micro Worry Free

BEWARE: Trend Micro will not protect you from Cryptowall 3.0
This virus will encrypt all of your files and hold them ransom. Be cautious of all emails and file downloads. Emails containing links regarding, packages or orders being ready for pickup, etc… are the perfect delivery mechanism for this infection. It will encrypt files that are commonly used such as Word, Excel, PDF, QBW, QBB, and Pictures & Videos, as well as any files on network shared mapped drives. This is not reversible so far. Make sure you are using an offsite cloud based backup that offers multiple versions. It is possible that your files can get encrypted, then get backed up to your offline storage and corrupt them as well, having the previous versions option can be your only saving grace. I know this sounds crazy, but the only fool proof way to be protected is to Buy a large external drive, solid state usb 3.0(for speed), and conduct a complete file backup periodically so that you are not completely lost.
Putting it frankly, this is REALLY bad shit!
I have put in requests to my antivirus developers for testing of this NASTY cryptowall, and still waiting to hear for a confirmation that Emsisoft can protect you. So far Trend Micro does nothing against it. Cryptowall 3.0 will disable all Trend Micro settings and cancel protection before it wreaks havoc. BE CAREFUL PEOPLE!
If you want to tinker on the internet, do it on a computer that doesn’t have any importance to your business and is not connected to your domain or network. One that is connected to a separate network or internet connection. We like to call this a SANDBOX, a computer that is independent from all other computers and stores no vital information. Something that you could wipe and restart without worrying about losing files.
Good Luck!

Computer Repair Kansas City 2014

Mobile Computer Repair Kansas City

We offer a complete mobile computer repair service in and around the Kansas City Metro area. Our professional staff specializes in common computer repair issues, such as:

  • Desktop Graphics and Main Board Replacement
  • Desktop Power Supply Upgrades
  • Memory Upgrades and Troubleshooting

Our computer repair services are available to you in the most convenient manner. Either you may bring your computer or mobile device to us for repair if you would like, but we are more than happy to travel to your home or place of business to conduct on site repairs based on your schedule. We also offer remote control IT computer repair services as well. Please see our remote assistance pages for more information. As always we offer a complete satisfaction guarantee. If we are not able to resolve your computer issue, there is no charge for the visit. Often times your computer repair issue may require more time or tools than we can offer in the field, in this case we may need to bring your computer back to the shop with us for further repairs including overnight monitoring, repairs, and upgrades. This allows us to work on more than one computer at a time, and allows us to stop the clock at three hours, your bill is based on the required repair instead of the total time needed. Many repairs can take ten or more hours to complete because of the intermittent supervision that is required. Many other shops may charge you for every hour that someone had to tend to the machine. We stop charging after three hours if we can work on your issue at our shop instead of your home or office.

Big Box Store Failures

All too often we get calls from clients that recently bought computers from the big box stores asking for advise, only to find out that their new computer is defective right out of the box. This is actually very common, sad, but common. Hard drives and motherboards are the most common “Out of the Box” defect that we have noticed. Sure these items are all covered under warranty for a specific period, but it can be very inconvenient to go through the process of making a claim and mailing the item back. When you purchase any electronics from the Big retailers, always test the product as soon as it arrives in your home or office. If you can determine that it is defective within the first 14 days, the stores are usually happy to give you a replacement straight away. If you wait too long you may be forced to deal directly with the manufacturer which may take several weeks to get a resolution. No one wants their computer repair issue to take weeks.

Hardware Related Computer Repairs

If the problem you are experiencing requires hardware replacement or repair, this is a situation that may take multiple trips. Due to purchasing & ordering of replacement parts or hardware, it is possible that our first visit may only include us troubleshooting the problem so that we may buy the correct replacement part if needed. Typically we can take it back to the shop with us for replacement repair once the parts arrive. And finally returning the computer completely repair back to you for re-connection and networking of other devices if needed.

Virus Removal and Antivirus Software

We use a variety of AntiVirus products to clean and protect your computer from the horrible software that has been flooding the Internet. Free antivirus products are no longer considered adequate protection. There have been some really nasty viruses infecting computers lately, you DO NOT want to become a victim of many of these. Do you self a favor and buy decent Antivirus package to keep your self protected. Here is a benchmark that gives you a good idea about which to choose.


Found Here: Antivirus Real World Benchmark
We currently recommend Emsisoft Anti-Malware to our clients. Emsisoft is also the software we use in-house to protect all of our equipment from toils of the Internet. It is about the same cost as the others, but we have noticed that Emsisoft does an outstanding job of protecting & cleaning computers. There are some error messages that come up from time to time on certain computers, but do not cause any other issues or lack of protection. We have passed along this information to our direct support staff over at Emsisoft for troubleshooting. Even with the little quirks that we have noticed, it is still our preferred Anti-Virus solution.

For ANY computer related issues, questions, problems, or repairs, please feel free to call us at 816-309-0646. We would be glad to assist you in any way possible! It is our mission to make sure that everyone has access to affordable computer-health care. We like to call ourselves the Computer Repair Headquarters of Kansas City.

Did you leave your new iPhone out in the rain, or drop your Android in your coffee? Want to repair it? It may still be ok with a little work. We have a process that seems to work quite well for water damaged devices. One iPhone was left outside in the rain all day, of course when the mistake was discovered, the phone was not responsive.

It has been over a year now and it is still in perfect working order with daily use. Sometimes your laptop may experience a similar incident, just remember it’s not dead until WE say it’s dead!

Some more interesting Malware Removal Challenges

QuickShare, Deaal2dealitt, DeocsConverter, Malware removal successful

At times we get stumped.  For instance, I received this computer over the weekend and here we are Tuesday and still have not completely eliminated the malware. I am still having trace files spring up out of the blue. The sign that tells me it is still there, is when I go to a website and attempt to download a piece of software. The webpage redirects me to some other sites trying to force an installation of really-bad-ware ( I like to call it). The files that are still affecting this machine are: Deaal2dealITT (add-on unremovable) 2b2.x64.dll located c:\programdata\deaal2dealitt which does not exist & DeocsConvErTer same location using y.x64.dll which also does not exist. Then there is a program listed in control panel called Quickshare by Linkury, this is good one too. You run the uninstaller, and nothing happens.  You hunt it down in the registry, and it’s not there.

Ah, what to do?

I am pretty sure at this point that the web redirects are coming from the Quickshare as it is the only program that windows still recognizes as installed. A quick uninstallation using Revo Uninstaller and viola! The problem is gone.

Tiffany is going to be please this afternoon when I drop it off malware free!

Computer Repair Information

Computer repair can include many different strategies. Performing a thorough virus removal is always the first step in computer repair. Many times in order to complete your computer repair project, hardware may need to be replaced or adjusted. If you have hardware that is not working correctly, repairing your computer may include driver updates. If the computer to be repaired is just running slowly, often the inside of the case is very dusty, this dust is keeping the processor from cooling down. A processor needs to stay cool in order to run efficiently, or you could be looking at costly computer repairs if it burns up. Some of our computer repair service calls include things as simple as checking connections on the outside and sometime the inside. If your computer is not turning on, you may try unplugging everything from it except for the power and the screen before turning it on, this could save you the cost of a computer repair service call. Of course these are some of the elementary steps to take, before scheduling a computer repair expert to assist you. As you can imagine the world of Computer Repair is much more complex that this short list explains. If these tips help you, excellent. If not, we are your one stop shop for all your computer repair needs. Call after you have completed these tips to schedule a computer repair technician to come to your home or business.
