Computer Viruses have been a problem for many years. When people speak of
computer viruses they often mistake Spyware for being a virus, when in fact most
computer viruses are hidden and not out in the open like a Spyware infection.
A Virus can be introduced to a computer through many different ways. They can be
attached to an email, hidden in a CD-ROM or USB drive, installed unknowingly when
installing supposedly legitimate software, through a network from another infected
computer, and through unsafe surfing with an un patched computer. Among the things
that a Computer Virus can do damage to are a persons files, system files, and boot files.
Or a virus could do nothing at all other than replicate itself and spread to other computers.
Does it seem like your computer has a life of its own? It could be a virus or Trojan.
No matter what kind of computer you have, you always need the most up-to-date
Anti-Virus software. Not only do Anti-Virus programs protect your computer from
crashing, but they also prevent you from accidentally passing the infection to other
computers of family and friends when you send e-mails or share files. If you're
unsure about which virus software to install or how to configure it, just give us a call!
