What Is a Computer Virus?

A computer virus is a malicious program or piece of code that downloads itself (or is unknowingly downloaded by you) onto your computer or laptop.

Computer viruses are dangerous because even the simple ones are capable of reproducing and attaching themselves to other files and programs on your device. As the copies continue to multiply, they take up valuable space on your hard drive.

As the computer virus eats up your memory space, you may notice your computer functioning at a slower rate, until it stops working at all. More sophisticated computer viruses can get past most security measures to steal your personal information and send it to other networks.

Stop viruses in their tracks through Imperial Computer Solutions. Our trained computer experts have experience in eliminating persistent and damaging viruses.

How Did a Computer Virus Infect My Computer or Laptop?

There is an unfortunate misconception that you are safe from viruses as long as you don’t visit “shady” websites. However, the people who create computer viruses are indiscriminate in where they strategically place them throughout the Internet.

The most common ways of coming in contact with a computer virus are through the downloading of any online information which includes:

  • Shared files (music, photos, etc.)
  • Spam email or email attachments
  • Free downloadable games
  • Free downloadable toolbars
  • Free downloadable media players

Even with your usual web browsing habits, it is possible to come across a computer virus that could infect your computer. For this reason, we recommend that you purchase Antivirus through Imperial Computer Solutions. We prefer using Kaspersky Lab Antivirus, which helps you stop viruses before they damage your computer or laptop.

If your device is already suffering from one or more computer viruses, don’t stress. Our virus cleanup service will help make your machine run as good as new. Feel free to contact any of our four locations in Grand Rapids, Kentwood, Rockford, and Hudsonville.
