Virus Removal

If your computer is connected to the internet, and you don't have Internet Security software installed and properly configured, it is only a matter of time before a Virus infection, or other forms of Malicious Software, take up residence on your machine. 

Computer Viruses and Malware - Are you infected?

Malicious Software can disrupt the smooth running of your computer, or allow hackers unfettered access to your private computer systems, and in the worst cases steal your personal information.

Viruses, Spyware, Botnets, Keyloggers Rootkits, Worms and Ransomware are some of the many forms of Malicious Software (or Malware), that can be easily contracted and difficult to get rid of. Most of the time they are introduced to your computer by clicking links on dodgy websites, via email attachments from unscrupulous sources, or unwittingly via infected documents and files sent from your colleagues and friends. You can also contract them by using infected USB devices (hard drives, memory sticks etc.) 

Hackers are indiscriminate.  Is your data safe?

Have you been hacked?

Hackers are for the most part faceless career criminals who make a living out of making other people's lives a misery. Whether stealing passwords and personally identifiable data from banks and financial institutions, wreaking havoc for small business and governments through denial of service attacks, or taking a swipe at your home PC and or holding your family photo's hostage.  Hackers are indiscriminate and can leave a trail of destruction in their wake.    


Viruses can lurk unseen on your PC.  Call Excalibur IT


Symptoms of Viruses and Malware

Sometimes Malware is in your face, hijacking your internet browser, bombarding you with popup adverts and slowing your computer to a crawl.  However often the more insidious viruses lurk unseen until the Malware is ready to deliver the payload, or lurk in the shadows stealing your private information. Family's and business can, and should, protect themselves by using Internet security software (Firewalls) which are designed to protect you from the majority of threats.

Customer Reviews

Thanks to Excalibur IT - Tim saved my sanity and my computer. Gave me peace of mind using a local guy makes it even more real.

Jo-Anne Mcardle
Director, Twin City Electric Co Pty Ltd

I would highly recommend Tim. He is prompt, courteous, and extremely knowledgeable about both software and hardware. He went above and beyond in helping me transition to a new computer.

Ruth Barcan
Berowra Heights

Tim was a great help in sorting out the problems with our PC, providing advice and a range of options for us to choose from. Very prompt service and response.

Brian Engert
Owner, Funnel Web

Tim is exceptional & I really cannot recommend him highly enough. If you are seeking an IT professional who can assist you with the simplest issues to the more complex networking & hardware solutions then stop searching and call Excalibur. After years of receiving wrong advice and purchasing the wrong hardware finding Tim was a godsend. Everything works & he has saved us a small fortune with his recommendations on what we should buy. Extremely happy

Penny Campbell
OZ Bin Cleaning

Tim is fantastic! He speaks in a language even the most non savvy person can understand, knows his stuff and can multitask so you get the most out of your time with him. None of my questions or issues were left unanswered/solved (and there were a lot!!)

Mandy Vandertouw, Director
Learn and Laugh Children's Centre

Helpful, experienced, accessible and importantly a good communicator.

Paul Armstrong

I have had to make a number of appointments to have my computer serviced and connect with Wi-Fi and Telstra and have been attended to within a few days.

The service I have received each time from Tim has been exemplary and results excellent. I also received help in sorting out other problems I was having with technology. Everything was done well and I have been thrilled with the help I received.
This is a company I highly recommend for anyone having difficulties , problems or has... Read More

I run a ukulele group with over 120 members, many of whom are seniors and are not comfortable using computers. Excalibur IT Solutions developed a website for us that is easy to use and the whole group has been very enthusiastic about it. They find it easy to manage and more than half of the group have bought iPads to use at our meetings. I am constantly updating the information on the website for my members and I find it very easy to manage. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Tim to anyone... Read More

Pentti Kivela

I had backup issues that plagued me for several days on my W7 machine. Tim went into remote control and explained all I had misunderstood in words of one syllable for several backup systems . Now I can restart in confidence. This is my third time of dealing with Tim and I highly recommend his prompt and accurate service.

Wayne Hayes

Excalibur IT came to our rescue recently when we had an attack by a Ransomware virus. They were on site within hours of my desperate phone call and arrived equipped with everything needed to get to work.

Tim was extremely reassuring, very professional and has exceptional knowledge and expertise with everything "IT". He explained things to us in easy to understand language, and gave us many tips outside of the scope of work he was here to do.

Although we lost many of our files to the... Read More

Excalibur IT recently undertook a complete overhaul of our website. It was a big job but the draft site was up and viewable within a few days which then allowed us to develop and refine the content.

Tim has excellent technical experience to build a site and a good understanding of SEO which was very important in the development stage. Tim was very responsive to our queries, had a good understanding of what we were trying to achieve and the end result is a site that looks cleaner and is... Read More

Thanks Tim for your thoroughly professional, knowledgeable and friendly service. Tim fixed my internet issues and was very helpful in recommending improvements upon my request. Highly recommend Tim and Excalibur


G'Day Tim,
When I brought me laptop round for you to get the internet up and running, I didn't expect a phone call 40 minutes later saying come and pick it up, I thought it would be a day job and the extras you put on for me were fantastic. I would recommend you to anyone, keep up the good work. And thanks again.

Leigh O'Connor

When you hand your PC in, it's almost like taking your Pet to the Vet. It has memories that are special and you put in a lot of trust to the person who is taking care of it.

I was very happy with the service i received. Courteous, in contact, reasonable price and a professional job. I had my PC upgraded which is a hard job to do and i'm very happy with how my upgraded computer is running.

Mitchell Hall

My Monitor kept going black on me. Excalibur came round and quickly found and fixed the problem. Tim was just so good and really helpful. I recommend Excalibur IT to everybody who owns a computer.

Berowra Heights

Hi Tim, just a note to thank you for the IT services you provided to our business recently. The recommendation to purchase a NAS (to access documents remotely and for back ups) has streamlined our operations significantly. Also, suggesting a hosted Exchange to sync meetings and emails across multiple devices is fantastic! You delivered what you said you would, arrived on time, charged a very reasonable amount and you were knowledgeable. We will certainly have you back should the need arise... Read More

Hi Tim, The re-imaging job you performed on the hard drive on my HP PC was excellent. You saved all of mine and my wife's personal files. My Thunderbird email account is working brilliantly, and you saved all my past emails and email folders. Thank you very much for the great PC rebuild. I can't believe the very reasonable invoice you emailed me.

I have and will recommend your IT services to everyone who owns a computer
