What is a computer virus?
Computer viruses are malicious software programs (or malware) spreading themselves through the Internet, from computer to computer or other removable media such as discs and portable hard drives. They are designed to interfere with computer operation by deliberately corrupting or deleting data, causing problems, compromising private data or slowing systems down.
Is my Computer infected?
You may have a virus infection if your computer is behaving strangely or starts displaying some of the following symptoms:
- Running slower
- Blocked or slow internet access
- Unresponsive programs that won’t start
- Pop-up windows or messages from Anti-virus software that you have never installed telling you that your PC is infected.
