Hello Padricroja,

Computer viruses are most of the time targeted at crushing various applications and even operating systems, for instance windows operating system is mostly targeted for it is widely used as opposed to Linux which is not affected by viruses for it has few users and it is free.

Viruses can be as result of downloading infected programs on the internet, transferring documents using USB drives and many other ways.
