What is a Computer Virus?

A computer virus is acomputer program that can replicate itself and spread from one computer to another. The term "virus" is also commonly, but erroneously, used to refer to other types of malware, including but not limited to adware and spyware programs that do not have a reproductive ability.

Malware includes computer viruses, computer worms, Trojan horses, most rootkits, spyware, dishonest adware and other malicious or unwanted software, including true viruses. Viruses are sometimes confused with worms and Trojan horses, which are technically different. A worm can exploit security vulnerabilities to spread itself automatically to other computers through networks, while a Trojan horse is a program that appears harmless but hides malicious functions. Worms and Trojan horses, like viruses, may harm a computer system´s data or performance. Some viruses and other malware have symptoms noticeable to the computer user, but many are surreptitious or simply do nothing to call attention to themselves. Some viruses do nothing beyond reproducing themselves.

Any virus will by definition make unauthorised changes to a computer, which is undesirable even if no damage is done or intended. Viruses affect Windows and Mac computers. Be safe!

   What is Spyware?

Spyware is any software that gathers personal information without your knowledge. This information is often used for advertising purposes. Spyware may cause your computer to slow down or encounter errors. Spyware has also been known to cause unwanted pop-up advertisements, an inability to connect to the Internet, or problems printing. Spyware applications are typically bundled as a hidden component of freeware or shareware programs that can be downloaded from the Internet. Once installed, spyware monitors your activity on the Internet and transmits that information in thebackground to someone else. Spyware can also gather information about e-mail addresses, passwords, and even credit card numbers.A common way to get spyware is through installation of file-swapping programs that are used to download music and movies from the Internet. Third-party spyware removal software can sometimes be found available for download from the Internet.
