Virus Information

The information below provides an overview of computer viruses; what they are and how they are distributed. There is also a list of virus symptoms as well as common myths about how viruses are contracted.

Virus Overview

One of the biggest fears among computer users is being infected by a computer virus or program designed to destroy their personal data. Viruses are malicious software programs that have been designed by other computer users to cause destruction and havoc on a computer and spread themselves to other computers where they can repeat the process. Once the virus is made, it is often distributed through shareware, pirated software, e-mail, P2P programs, or other programs where users share data. Most computer viruses are contracted today through e-mail and by downloading software over the Internet or P2P sharing. Computer users can help protect themselves against computer viruses, malware, and other computer security threats by installing an antivirus protection program

Virus Symptoms

Here are a few indicators that your computer or laptop may be infected with a virus:

  • Your computer runs more slowly than normal
  • Your computer stops responding or locks up often
  • Your computer crashes and restarts every few minutes
  • Your computer restarts on its own and then fails to run normally
  • Applications on your computer don’t work correctly
  • Disks or disk drives are inaccessible
  • You can’t print correctly
  • You see unusual error messages
  • You see distorted menus and dialog boxes

Virus Myths

“If I download a file onto a disk, I don’t have to worry about a viruses.”This is not true, just because you’ve placed a file on a diskette or moved a file from a diskette to your hard drive does not mean that your computer cannot be infected. Many viruses are memory resident and capable of loading themselves into memory once a diskette is placed in the computer.

“If I buy sealed software I don’t have to worry about viruses.” or “If I just buy registered software I don’t have to worry about viruses.” This is not always true, just because the program may be surrounded in plastic doesn’t mean that it cannot be infected with a virus. When a software program is saved onto a diskette or disc if that computer or program is infected the virus will attach itself. Although this issue very rarely occurs it is still a possibility.

“If I don’t download anything off of the Internet I don’t have to worry about viruses.” This is definitely not true. Although most companies and web sites will scan the files for viruses before they make them available to download some may not. In addition many people create a site or a file to download with the intention of spreading a virus, spyware, Trojan horses, or other malware.

“If I just read my e-mail, I will not have to worry about viruses.” This is not true; there are viruses out there that are distributed through e-mail; also, files can be attached with e-mail and if executed can infect the computer. Today this is one of the most common ways computer viruses spread around the world.

“If I don’t get on the Internet I don’t have to worry about viruses.”This, unfortunately, is not the case. Although many viruses are spread over the Internet today it is still possible to contract a computer virus form any diskette or disc you put in the computer.

“You can contract viruses from just looking at web pages.” Not true. However, you can contract a virus if you download and execute a file from that web page. In addition spyware and other scripts can be executed from just viewing a web page. Although these programs are not designed to delete files on your computer they should be considered a privacy violation.

About Spyware

Spyware is a type of malware that is installed on computers and collects little bits of information at a time about users without their knowledge. The presence of spyware is typically hidden from the user, and can be difficult to detect. Typically, spyware is secretly installed on the user’s personal computer through a deceptive pop-up message that the user clicks on. Spyware on a computer or laptop may cause poor system performance, freezing, failure to boot, system crashes or difficulty connecting to the Internet. If you have this type of virus, spyware removal service is necessary to restore proper operation of your computer or laptop.

About Adware

Adware, or advertising-supported software, is any software package which automatically plays, displays, or downloads advertisements to a computer after the software is installed on it or while the application is being used. While some types of adware are legitimate, others are considered spyware and can steal information or malware that disguises itself as a trusted program to infect your system. Adware on a PC or laptop can cause interruptions, annoyances, distractions from the task at hand, or more serious damage. If you have this type of virus, adware spy removal service is necessary to restore proper operation of your computer or laptop.

About Trojans

A Trojan, sometimes referred to as a Trojan horse, is a type of malware that appears to perform a desirable function for the user but instead allows unauthorised access to the user’s computer system. Trojans are typically installed on a computer or laptop from software downloads (especially from file sharing networks) or from clicking on infected links in websites or email attachments. Results of a trojan infection include:

  • Spamming of your email address
  • Data theft (passwords, credit card info)
  • Keystroke logging
  • Unwanted software installation
  • Unwanted modification and deletion of files
  • Wasting hard drive storage space
  • Crashing the computer or laptop

If you are experiencing any of these problems, you need trojan virus help to remove a trojan horse! Anti spyware trojan removal or a trojan horse cleaner may not be sufficient to get rid of a trojan computer virus and restore proper operation of your PC or laptop.

About Malware

Malware, short for malicious software, is software designed to infiltrate a computer system without the owner’s informed consent. Software is considered malware based on the intent of the creator to cause harm on another computer. Malware can include computer viruses, worms, trojan horses, spyware, and dishonest adware. If you have this type of trojan, malware removal is necessary to restore proper operation of your computer or laptop.
