  • Over the past year, Rogue Removal has been one of the most in-demand services we provide at dot.help. Rogues, it seems, can be contracted from just about anywhere on today’s Internet. Rogues take advantage of social engineering to frighten consumers into coughing up their credit card numbers and will often cripple the functionality of a Windows operating system until properly removed. If you are accessing the Internet from a Windows operating system, you are probably at risk of contracting a rogue. For your convenience, we have provided a Rogue FAQ to help Windows users understand and avoid this security threat. Think you may already have contracted a rogue? Bring your computer in to our convenient location in historic, downtown Chehalis or give us a call at (360) 740-4472.

    Got rogues? Don't get upset. Get dot.help!

  • Did you know that those “universal” adapters aren’t really universal?

    The wrong adapter could cause permanent damage to your computer!

    It’s important to get the right adapter for your laptop, but you don’t want to pay extortionate prices, right?

    The affordable solution is right here at your friendly local dot.help Personalized Computer Support.

    At dot.help, we’re here to help.

  • Don’t be fooled by fake security software! Rogues like the one pictured below may look convincing, but they are malicious software! This pop-up is intended to look official and scary so that you will click on it. Don’t! Even trying to close the window may allow the rogue to install itself on your computer.

    Think you’re immune? Chances are, you’re not. At dot.help we’re removing rogues from local home and office computers every day. You can get a rogue even from a legitimate website. You can get a rogue even if you have Anti-virus or Anti-spyware tools installed on your computer. You can get a rogue even if you use a pop-up blocker with your browser.

    What should you do? Surf smart. Don’t accept anything that’s presented to you on the web before you’ve researched it and determined that it comes from a trusted source. If you’re not sure what to do, call us!

    At least 1 out of every 10 customers who bring their computers in to dot.help for rogue removal have already paid for the fake security software thinking it was legitimate. Keep your credit card in your wallet! Give us a call!
