Virus & Spyware Removal and Protection

Suspect a virus on your computer?  Call on the experts at CTS to detect and remove viruses, spyware and malware.   Once you authorize a technician to remote into your computer, he or she can handle it all -  with you there watching or while you’re tending to other important things.

As a Cox High Speed Internet customer, you already receive free access to McAfee Anti-Virus protection (a feature that must be “turned on” in order to activate). If you haven’t installed the software yet,  let a CTS technician help.  Not only can a technician provide guidance on how to set up your anti-virus software and safely configure your devices, but he or she also can do it for you. 

CTS can get you back up and running and  give you peace of mind that  your home network is safe.

With certified technicians and the ability to remotely troubleshoot, CTS experts can resolve your issues. They will take the time to thoroughly diagnose the problem and fix it for you.

  • Resolve frozen computer issues to get you up and running again as quickly as possible
  • Remove unnecessary programs that impact performance to save disk space, clean up your start screens and stop any redundant operating system messages 

Performance Optimization (PC Tune Up)

Just like changing the oil in your car, we recommend regular maintenance checks and diagnostics to give you confidence that your devices will continue to perform as expected.  We run a series of diagnostic activities to ensure all programs are working properly, resulting in improved operating performance and maximum PC/laptop efficiency. Best of all, as a CTS subscriber, you are entitled to unlimited PC Tune Ups.
