What problems could viruses cause?
A computer virus is software that can spread from one computer to another. The virus can interfere with how your computer operates and destroy your data. It can render your computer impossible to use by causing it to crash, and could even delete everything on your hard drive.
A virus can spread from one computer to another via email attachments, instant messages, downloads from a website and infected data storage like USB sticks, CDs etc. A virus could even gain access to your email contacts and send its self to everyone you know. The ability to spread through various methods increases a virus's chance of infecting other computers.
What is a spyware?
Spyware is a type of malware that is installed on your computer without your knowledge, usually after visiting a website and downloading something you thought might be of use (but has spyware bundled in with it). Spyware collects information about you and your internet browsing habits without your knowledge. The presence of spyware is typically hidden and can be difficult to detect.
Obviously you do not want unknown people or organisations to have access to your personal information so to stay safe it's best to check your computer for spyware and remove it immediately.
