Common symptoms of viruses
« on: November 30, 2010, 10:30:06 AM »
I took time to come up with this, viruses have to be understood very well. To stop something you have to understand how it works!! this will help you know if your computer has virus.

Common symptoms of viruses

1. Occurrence of strange messages, symbols or images appear on your screen.
2. Strange things happen when you are doing routine work.
3. The computer makes strange noises at inappropriate times.
4. Files you know you saved are missing.
5. The operating system acts slow, doesn't come on or just isn't working as normal.

Speed
If your computer is running slower than normal, it may be a symptom of having a virus on your computer. Frequent freezes where your computer does not respond at all can indicate a potential virus. Slow Internet and download speeds may also be indicative of a virus.

Hardware Problems
Look for any abnormal hardware activities. Some viruses may cause CD-ROM drives to open and close on their own. Hardware errors may also be a symptom of a computer virus.

Software Problems
Monitor your disk space usage. Viruses may delete many of your files or make copies of large files. Look for any unusual changes in your disk space. Also, look for any programs that may start or end on their own. Viruses can spawn new instances of applications.

Internet Problems
Look for any irregularities in your Internet usage. If you are overwhelmed by pop-up advertisements, your computer may have a local virus managing those pop-ups. Directing your homepage to another page is another potential indicator of a virus.
