What is a computer virus?
A virus is a program that gets loaded onto your computer without your consent. It has the potential to shut down your computer and cause destructive data loss. Like human viruses, a virus on your computer will spread quickly, doing more damage the longer that it is left unrepaired.
Computer viruses are frequently spread by attachments in email messages or by instant messaging messages. Therefore, it is important to take care when opening up email attachments; it is best practice to only open attachments from reputable sources. Viruses hide within the attachments of funny images, greeting cards, or audio and video files.
Computer viruses also spread through downloads on the Internet; downloading music is notorious for catching a virus.
What is spyware?
Spyware is a piece of software that is installed on your computer without your consent. Unlike a virus it does not spread, or does not cause data loss. Spyware works by collecting information about your computer usage and sending it over the internet. You can recognise spyware because it will usually do one or more of these things:
- Change your computer’s settings
- Have trouble connecting to the internet
- Slow down the speed of your computer
- Cause your computer to display pop-up advertisements
- Redirect your searches (You search for plane tickets and end up on an adult website)
- Change your home page settings
What is adware?
You know you have adware when you keep getting hassled with unsolicited advertisements. Adware is annoying and it is generally loaded onto your PC or laptop when you download or install a free program. The reason this happens is because many free programs rely on built-in advertising for revenue. Adware will not generally affect the performance of your computer, nor will it result in any data loss.
