PC Virus and Spyware removal and protection

What is a virus and what does it do?

A virus on your pc is a small program that is deliberately designed to interfere with general operation, corrupt or delete data and also designed to spread throughout the internet. They slow your pc down and cause various other issues.

Sophisticated viruses such as worms can replicate themselves and spread by controlling email programs.

Trojans can falsely appear as a genuine program to coax users into downloading them. They can offer expected results while working in the background destroying your system or other unprotected networked systems.

 

What is Spyware/Adware and what does it do?

Spyware and adware is a similar nuisance. It can install itself on your computer without your consent, it can come with free software and install simultaneously, it may offer you links to 'special deals' or even heavier versions of spyware without you knowing!

It can collect personal information from your system, browsing habits or just about anything it wants to and send the information back to its creator.

It can change your home page, search page and add additional options to your browser. It can cause havoc with your internet connection and prove very difficult to remove.
