The computer virus is a malware that reaches your machine via the Internet without your knowledge. Software viruses are of different types and pose different levels of threat. Depending on the form, you can change your computer settings and sometimes even destroy your hard drive and cause data loss. There are hundreds of antivirus applications that can delete malware from your computer.
