What is a computer virus?
Computer viruses are malicious programs that are designed to spread in computer software; just think of a flu virus that can spread in our systems and from person to person. And like those viruses, computer viruses copy themselves in your files, hard drive and removable disks. The most insidious aspect of a computer virus is that you probably don’t know it’s in your computer’s system unless something goes terribly wrong.
