Frequently Asked Question

Viruses sound bad. What are they?

Viruses are programs on your computer that destroy files or wreak havoc on your system. If you're computer's running slow or not responding properly, it could be a virus. Usually, viruses replicate and stop any threats to themselves. That means the first thing most viruses do is disable your anti-virus software. It may seem like your anti-virus software is monitoring your system properly, but if you're infected, you're probably allowing further infestation. You might have viruses on your system right now and not even realize it. (Kinda scary, isn't it?) Most viruses get into your system through e-mail or from downloading files from unreliable sources. All computer viruses are man-made. Learn more here: http://www.microsoft.com/athome/security/viruses/virus101.mspx
