A computer virus is a software program that has been intentionally created to cause a user grief, spread to other computers, or destroy data on an individual’s computer. To help prevent a computer from becoming infected by a virus, software developers have developed anti virus programs that stay active on the computer helping to protect it. It is important to realise that many computers do not come pre-loaded with these already installed and that if computers do come with these programs, the programs may expire within 90 days.
