Computer Virus Indicators

There are many indications that show that a computer may be infected with a computer virus. They include:

1. Slow Computer – The computer is operating slower than it normally operates. This is a sign that the computer virus may be using the computer central processing unit and memory to perform tasks.

2. Pop Ups – If the computer is getting pop ups from unwanted websites, then the computer may be infected with adware.

3. Applications such as computer antivirus applications not functioning properly – Certain viruses may work to make certain antivirus programs stop working.

Microsoft provides a extensive list of computer virus symptoms (click here to view). The best way to determine if a computer is truly infected is to use antivirus and antispyware software.

Thanks for the information on the Bogus AntiVirus Program PC Defender 2016. I made the mistake of going to a website without AntiVirus Protection and got zapped by the Defender 2016. You have a Happy New Year!!
