How viruses work

How viruses work

Malware and viruses are usually about tricking computer users. You will either install something or click on a tab, and that allows the malware to begin its mission. Be wary of clicking on redirected tabs on sites that offer free services or software. You may get pop-ups that inform you that your system is infected and you will be urged to clean and scan.

What happens when a malware invades your computer system? Any or all of the following may occur:

  • It replicates itself into the different parts of your computer system
  • Bombarding of your browser with advertisements
  • Rendering your device inoperable by breaking system components
  • Blocking access to files or even the entire system
  • Can install applications that capture keystrokes.
Signs That Your Computer Contains Malware

One of the signs that your computer has malware is that your applications may run slowly or not at all.

Sometimes, you will receive annoying ads and pop-ups on your screen. If you have not added such an extension, then there may be an unwelcome guest in your computer.

There are three things you should do to prevent such a scenario.

  • Do not click on suspicious looking emails
  • Take care when downloading free applications
  • Do not click on popup windows that you don’t recognise.

If you are still not sure, then let a professional who has experience in virus removal and virus protection take a look at your device.
