As computer owners one of the main things we are worried about are viruses. A computer virus is a type of computer program that copies itself and infects a computer. A virus spreads from one computer to another when the viruses’ host is taken to the target computer; examples of this is when a user sends the virus over the Internet, when it is transferred using removable device like a floppy disk, CD, DVD, or USB drive.
The word “virus” is commonly used to describe to other types of Malware, Adware, and Spyware programs that do not have the reproductive ability that a “true” virus has. The possibility of spreading of viruses to other computers increases when infected files on a network file system or a file system are accessed by another computer.
