What is a virus?
A virus is a program that gets loaded onto your computer without you knowing about it and can potentially cause your PC to stop functioning and even result in data loss. A virus can create and run multiple copies of itself. Most people don’t realize they have a virus until their computer starts to run slowly. Even such a simple virus is dangerous because it will quickly use all available memory and bring the system to a halt. Some viruses are also capable of moving across networks and bypassing security systems to infect other computers.
What is spyware?
Spyware and adware are different to viruses because they do not create copies of themselves and spread, nor do they result in data loss. The most common symptom of a spyware is that your computer will start to run very slowly and have trouble connecting to the internet. At times these programs may invade your privacy and attempt to share your personal information by transmitting it across the internet.
What is adware?
Adware is usually loaded onto your PC when you download or install a free program. Many free programs are provided free because they rely on the built-in advertising to generate sales. Adware will not usually affect the performance of your computer, nor will it result in any data loss…but it can be extremely annoying to be inundated with advertising and pop-ups!
What are rootkits?
Rootkits are software programs that have been specifically designed to compromise a computer system and are very effective at obscuring this. Usually this is achieved by replacing vital system files so that it can hide it’s own processes and files. Rootkits can also install a back-door on a computer by replacing the login system.
What is a worm?
A worm is a self-replicating computer program which use either a network or the Internet to to spread autonomously.
What are trojan horses?
Trojan horses are software that appear to provide a useful function but actually install additional software which allows unauthorized access to a computer. This is usually to allow a hacker remote access to a computer.
