Sophos: Free your computer from virus for free
For those who just came out living under a rock and just decided to purchase a PC, a virus is a program or programming code that replicates by being copied or initiating its copying to another program, computer boot sector or document.
Viruses often perform some type of harmful activity on infected hosts, such as stealing hard disk space or CPU time, accessing private information, corrupting data, displaying political or humorous messages on the user's screen, spamming their contacts, or logging their keystrokes. However, not all viruses carry a destructive payload or attempt to hide themselves -the defining characteristic of viruses is that they are self-replicating computer programs which install themselves without the user's consent.
Is your PC infected with a virus? Or are you a bit unsure whether your existing antivirus software has detected and removed it? If you're still having problems and unsure where to turn to next, there is a free virus removal tool called Sophos that you can use.
