We recommend letting an letting an ‘expert’ complete an extra check of the health of your computers as soon as you can – This will give you some comfort and it is always better to be safe than sorry.

If you wish to do this yourself:- We recommend using your antivirus scanner to perform a full scan (and if something is found, write it down, follow the instructions to remove where possible and, if at all unsure, let us know so we can research and perform a deeper double check and removal)

Also check you are up to date with the Windows updates.

If you are not technically minded or just don’t have the time, we are offering a service to do all this (i.e. a full health check) for £50 per machine or £30 per machine for 5 or more. (All prices are + VAT)

If you would like to take up this service and therefore let us assist, please email us@getonit.co.uk Quoting reference HealthCheck and we will call you back.

Block (or recommend staff do not open) email attachments containing executable files or ZIP files with executable files like EXE and SCR.

Install antivirus software. Although not perfect, antivirus software can still catch a large percentage of malware and reduce noise.
