What to do?

The easiest way to get rid of the virus is by hiring a professional that understand the virus and can remove it. Most virus are located in several documents in your server and it must be checked! It takes time and patience to make sure all files, images and scripts has been checked and removed.

Can I do it myself?

Yes you can, but if you don\'t have knowledge with servers and FTP access it will pretty much be impossible for you to remove the virus successfully. You must know what you are doing in order to assure the integrity of your site. Remember once you have a bad reputation its very hard to get it back. Its like going to jail, bad record, bad record for a long time.

How much does it cost to remove a virus?

Our standard price for virus removal is $150.00. That includes removing the virus and also re-submitting you to the search engines. Once that is done we keep checking your site for a total of 6 months to make sure the virus did not come back. 99% of the time it does not come back! Some virus needs a lot more than just a standard check and clean up. It ad quires intensive reproductions of files and scripts, these virus are not easy to remove it takes a lot more time and for that reason the price must be negotiated first hand.

If you don\'t remove the virus, you will be getting everyone that visits your website infected. Not only will that but your website also be banned from the search engines. Once a site is banned it\'s quite difficult to get its reputation back to normal. We strongly recommend you not doing that, as it will result in less visitors and less sales.

I removed the virus and it came back! Why?

This happens more than you think. If you tried to remove the virus yourself and it was not successful. 2 things could have gone wrong. 1st you did not remove all the virus, please note that virus is code, and if its not checked correctly you can think that you removed it but you DIDN\'T! it must be checked and double checked. Now if you are 100% sure that you removed it the other option is someone has access to your FTP and you should be thinking about changing all your passwords and login to avoid more destruction to your reputation and customers.

How long does it take to remove the virus from my computer?

This is a great question! It will all depend on what type of virus it is. If it\'s a simple virus it can be removed in a few hours. It will also depend on the size of your website. A site of 10 pages and 100 pages will have a complete different time frame for virus removal!

What our (Partners/Customers) are saying

I have been working with Web Designer Express for the last 5 years and their web designers and project managers have always been there for me. Any changes, updates or modifications I need on the website is always taken care by my project manger. I love the fact that I can just call Gus anytime I need anything, and he always takes care of it for me. Their customer service is great and I am now building another website with them. I am very happy with the results and I would recommend them to anyone trying to build a business website. I am honored to be able to express my deep gratitude for their expertise.
