Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ):
What is a computer virus?
Computer viruses are small software programs that are designed to spread from one computer to another and to interfere with computer operation.
A virus might corrupt or delete data on your computer, use your e-mail program to spread itself to other computers, or even erase everything on your hard disk.
Computer viruses are often spread by attachments in e-mail messages or instant messaging messages. That is why it is essential that you never open e-mail attachments unless you know who it's from and you are expecting it.
Viruses can be disguised as attachments of funny images, greeting cards, or audio and video files.
Computer viruses also spread through downloads on the Internet. They can be hidden in illicit software or other files or programs you might download.
To help avoid computer viruses, it's essential that you keep your computer current with the latest updates and antivirus tools, stay informed about recent threats, run your computer as a standard user (not as administrator), and that you follow a few basic rules when you surf the Internet, download files, and open attachments.
Once a virus is on your computer, its type or the method it used to get there is not as important as removing it and preventing further infection.
How did my computer get infected with this virus?
Computer viruses can come from many different sources. Generally, the virus will enter your computer without you installing it. Here are some possible sources:
P2P Software – These networks allow you to share files with other people on the network. However, many people may be sharing infected files or may use false filenames to trick users into installing a virus. This tend to be the main source of viruses for most people.
Freeware or Shareware Software – There are many freeware software which you can download on the web which has hidden bugs in it. Sometimes they may have adware in it (creates ads on your computer), but sometimes they can have spyware or viruses in them.
Websites – There are certain websites which will transmit the virus to your computer. Try to surf only trusted websites. It is important to always double check before clicking on an unknown link.
