Signs Your Computer Might Be Compromised: What to Look For

Your computer is the lifeline of your business. It's how you stay connected with clients, access important files, and keep your day-to-day operations running smoothly. So if you think your computer might have been compromised, it's crucial to take action as soon as possible. In this blog post, we will discuss some signs that your computer might be compromised and what you can do about it.

What are Typical Indicators That Your Computer System is Compromised?

- Your computer is running slowly or freezing up

- You are seeing pop-ups or other unexpected ads

- You are being redirected to strange websites

- There are new icons on your desktop or in your browser toolbar

- Your home page has changed without you changing it

- You are getting strange error messages

If you notice any of these signs, the first thing you should do is disconnect from the network and run a virus scan. If you don't have antivirus software installed on your computer, or if you are unsure - call in some help from an experienced computer support technician. Once you have run a virus scan and removed any malware that was found, change all of your passwords. This includes passwords for your email, social media accounts, and any other online accounts you have. If you use the same password for multiple accounts, change them all to something different.

If you think your computer might have been compromised, don't panic. By following the steps above, you can help protect your computer and your business.
