How often do you think about viruses in your computer? A very few use antivirus software in a regular manner and scan their computer to find virus and other infected files in their computer. Some just install any antivirus program on their PC and never think about it. They never update antivirus database, never run scans for viruses or other unwanted programs. And others never install antivirus program on their computer.
The main reason for not running a scan for viruses is the time required for it. Many people do not think about this because they don’t want to waste their valuable time on this. They just finish their job on computer or Internet and turn off the computer.
Viruses or unwanted programs can infect your computer and slow down the performance. Virus, sometimes called as Trojan or Worm can make copies of itself. Whether or not a specific virus does anything more depends on the maliciousness and skill of the person who created the virus. Some viruses “trigger” on certain days and might erase every file on your hard disk. Others are more insidious, making small changes to files that may go unnoticed for months. Virus can do much more things which I cannot cover up in this post.
