With so many people using the Internet and depending on the Internet for information education and for work, many computers are at risk of catching viruses. A virus can do anything from simply placing a bug on your computer that can 'confuse' areas of the hard drive and make things run less smoothly. A virus can also wipe larger areas of your memory. This kind of thing can be downright disastrous if you store private information on your pc or if you are keeping programs and data that are valuable to you.
