Symptoms of virus infection
viruses are well known as the most incompatible programs (except platform viruses from “Concept” class, Word doc. Viruses, and so on). Strange messages, weird songs or noises in the speakers are other signs of a virus infection. Many viruses announce their presence in this way. Another sign is a destroyed data base. The instant loss of a file or errors at the file system is classic signs of a virus infection. A slowed down access at the hard disk is caused by some stealth viruses that interfere between the operating system and the disk access system. The size of the memory displayed by the specialized programs is less than 640Kb. Sometimes this effect is generated by some memory managers, too, but most of the time this is a symptom of an infection. Another symptom is the fact that the self-check programs are reporting that they were modified.
In depth and on demand scanning
In order to make sure you do not face a virus infection the easiest method is to scan your entire system looking for malware programs. The antivirus and antispyware programs will scan the entire system and if they find a threat, they will clean it or will send it in quarantine.
Another method is online scanning. This method allows you to scan your system without being necessary to install another program. This method has a great advantage: if you don’t have antivirus software installed or these were blocked by the virus itself, you can get rid of infection through this online scanning.
It is not very difficult to avoid problems caused by viruses’ infections. One of the most important measures you can take is to install a powerful antivirus and antispyware programs. They will protect your computer against viruses and other on line threats. More on, you must take care to update them regularly and to download the newest updates launched by the vendors for their clients. A best protection depends very much on updates. If you always take care to clean your computer, deleting the useless files and cleaning the registry system the problem can be avoided, too.
