Behind the Curtain
The use of a Personal Computer and the Internet has not become any easier or safer than driving a car. The more cars and the more drivers and the higher speeds all contribute to more dangerous highways. The Information Highway is no different.
Take the time to learn how to drive defensively and keep your vehicle well maintained so you will not be involved in an avoidable accident.

Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.

What is a Computer Virus?
A computer virus is a program that has the ability to replicate, or make copies of itself, and spread to other files. Viruses can attach themselves to many types of files and programs, and spread as files that are copied and sent from one computer to another. Just like biological viruses, computer viruses spread quickly and can be difficult to eradicate. Viruses are never accidents, or caused by computer glitches. All viruses are created deliberately.

In addition to replication, many computer viruses deliver a "payload." While some virus payloads merely display messages or images, others can destroy files, reformat your hard drive, or send unintended email messages. Even if a virus doesn't contain a damage routine, it can still cause trouble by wasting storage space and memory. Additionally, some viruses are poorly written, and may cause a computer to stop or damage files. Many viruses make the computer's memory unstable or cause programs to run improperly.

Viruses will not go away anytime soon. More than 60,000 have been identified and hundreds of new ones are created every month. With numbers like these, no one who uses computers is immune from viruses.
