An introduction to Antivirus

An antivirus is a program that helps to protect your computer from most viruses, worms, trojans and other unwanted invaders. It’s recommended that you update your antivirus software regularly to have the latest in virus protection.  Antivirus software enables you to analyze your PC identifying all potentially damaging threats and later conduct a virus removal.

Types of Virus

There are many types of PC viruses that can be removed by free antivirus software such as Bitdefender or Microsoft Security Essentials. Here are some common types of viruses:

 

- Boot: They are very atypical. They are programs that are loaded in the master boot record of your computer.

- Adware: Is a kind of malware that is created to pop up and download advertisements with an online user.

- Time bomb: A time bomb is a software that stays dormant for a later date or upon a specific action. 

- Worms: Worms are typically passed through attachments from emails. Worms are viruses that replicate and to spread quickly and widely from one computer to another without damaging the system.

- Trojan: Is a destructive software that is masqueraded as a useful and good program. Trojan Horse brings with it a separate code that allows a person to access to the infected computer or collect data and send it to an unknown Internet user without the user’s knowledge. It can be easily detected with a simple virus scan.

- Hijackers: Hijacking is when the browser’s settings have been modified without user’s permission and redirects to another website.

- Keylogger: Keyloggers are hidden in the operating system, so that the victim does not have the knowledge that he/she is being monitored. Keyloggers currently are developed to illicit means such as stealing bank passwords. They are also used by users with a little more knowledge to obtain personal passwords, and email accounts,..

- Zombie: The zombie state occurs when a computer is infected and is being controlled by others. They can use it to spread viruses, keyloggers, and invasive procedures in general. Usually this situation occurs because the computer has a firewall and / or operating system not updated.

- Macro Virus: Macro viruses link their actions to model documents and other files so that when loading the file executes the instructions contained in the application file, the first instructions executed are those of the virus.
