I lost some important files on my Library folder. Is it possible that I caught a virus? How can I identify codes that are malicious and which are not? Is it possible to prevent it? If so, what steps do I need to take? Are there any programs that can destroy this?
How to spot code that are malicious?
Malicious codes are Trojans, viruses, specific exploits and automated rootkits, which all designed to breach your security.
Detecting and removing these malicious codes could be time-consuming, so always have a back up system. But the good thing is nowadays there are freeware programs in the internet that actually to a good job in detecting and removing these malicious codes.
I for myself have been a victim of these malicious codes, my computer slows down, freezes, some programs suddenly won't work etc, and I thought it was a hardware problem. So I tried using these programs and after it scanned all my files, programs etc, and deleted the malicious codes detected, my computer when back to normal. I suggest trying superantispyware or malwarebytes. Hope these solves your problem.
