Is your computer acting strange? Think your computer might be infected with a virus? Ready to throw your computer out the window? Don’t get rid of your computer just yet. Fortunately, there are some steps you can take to detect, remove, and prevent your computer from being infected with a virus. A computer virus can do a great deal of harm to your computer. This malicious software can do everything from erasing your computers hard drive to installing monitoring software, such as a keystroke logger, to record every keystroke typed on your computer. This could ultimately lead you to becoming a victim of identity theft, one of the fastest growing crimes in Canada and the USA. Many viruses even use your computer as a platform to send viruses to other people. For example, a person infected with a virus could be unknowingly sending a virus to everyone they email. Or that cute little joke that you forwarded to all your friends could be infected with a nasty virus.
