How do I know if I have a virus?

17 July 2009

You will often find that your computer is running much slower than usual and quite often it will get increasingly slower as time goes by.

Have a look at your web browser's history and see what websites you've visiting.

If you've been downloading numerous files or if you've been on questionable websites then it is highly likely that a virus or trojan horse may be present on your computer.

It may not even be affecting your computer, but just lying dormant in the background, or maybe you're a carrier who's simply passing the infection onto other contacts on your computer.

Which ever way you look at it, if you don't have anti-virus software in place, its well worth downloading one.

Acquiring an anti-virus program will minimise the risk or viruses for the future, and also eliminate any viruses you may currently have.
