There are many malicious programs out there that have been written to do all types of nasty things to your computer or to the programs installed on it. Unless your PC is never connected to the Internet, or any files loaded into it or opened – then there’s a fair chance that your computer is at risk of being infected, and may even already be infected.

A virus is a piece of software code capable of replicating itself and spreading to other computers.
Quite often the term virus is used to describe all malicious software on a computer, but this is not quite true, as only a true virus can spread from one PC to another, the others generally only affect the PC on which they are on. (Only 12% of computers are affected by true viruses these days)
Malware is the true generic term for all program code written to do harm or unwanted actions – it is short for Malicious Software..
(80% of computers are affected by malware these days)
