What is a Computer Virus?
The term "virus" or "computer virus" refers to anything unwanted or harmful on our computers. A virus is a piece of code or program that, when executed, it modifies other computer programs and inserts its own code.
Can I add an anti-virus program if my computer already has a virus?
The short answer is no. Due to the nature of viruses and how they hide themselves on your computer, an anti-virus program is unable to fully detect and remove a virus or other threat once it has already infected your computer.
How to protect myself from a virus?
The only way to 100% protect one's self from a virus or malware infection is to completely stay off the internet. This is not realistic for most people, so what can we do to keep ourselves safe? First, you need to start with a good antivirus program. Not all AV programs are the same, and stay away from anything free (you do get what you pay for). Many anti-virus products available today are simply unable to handle today's constant onslaught of viruses and malware. Badly designed products can also seriously effect your system's performance. At Concept Computers, we are constantly evaluating the very best solutions available.
Do Macs get viruses?
