Computer viruses can wreak havoc on your productivity and your peace of mind, both at work and at home. Sometimes annoying popup windows keep distracting you; sometimes your computer is running so slowly you feel like screaming; sometimes your data is missing or misplaced. These are only three signs, among others, that your computer may be infected with a virus or malware.
What is a Computer Virus?
A computer virus is a program that replicates itself and invades a computer without your permission. It can delete or duplicate your files, reformat your hard drive, and even crash your entire computer system. Some are powerful enough so that lost data may be difficult to be restored by even the most talented computer specialist. It is often used to refer to other forms of malicious software, such as computer worms, ransomware, spyware, adware, trojan horses, keyloggers, rootkits, bootkits, malicious Browser Helper Object (BHOs) and other destructive software. All of them are trying to find ways into your computer.
How does a computer virus infect your system?
They can invade your computer in many ways and can replicate themselves so quickly that you barely have time to react.
The three most common entry points for viruses are:
- Opening suspicious email attachments
- Using removable storage devices such as Memory Cards or USB Flash Drives that may be infected
- Using unsecured internet sites
