The first reason why computers are easily get infected by viruses is the Copy and Paste feature. Viruses resides on memory after a program is launched into machine. And then they will easily spread in your computer's memory and infect all your files on your computer.

The second reason is when you are downloading from the internet. Today, people tends to create new attributes of viruses on the internet. You need to be very careful on downloading files because some viruses could not be easily removed and can also hide and modify your computer settings.

You need a strong antivirus software for this.

Hi Richad-Ndb,

First of all, there are billions of viruses in this world. Each virus have its own name and they have their own missions. All type of viruses can harm your computer easily. Some of the virus have the ability to crash the computer's performance, creates loopholes for intruders. Opens backdoor to auto download viruses, some of them steal your confidential data and send it automatically to intruders, and some will make your pc 100% to death. Now a days the virus have a tendency to hide themselves from the antivirus. So its really a mess  when a computer is infected with virus.

Well there are a lot of antivirus programs out there to clean the viruses but installing a antivirus in affected pc have no use. So try to install antivirus before virus getting on it. The problem with installing antivirus in affected pc is that, the virus itself create a defensive shield to protect themselves and make your antivirus to crash itself (antivirus stops working).

Advice: Don't download antivirus from third party sites, Just make it from their website.

Recommended antivirus applications: Eset smart security 5, Eset nod 32, Quick heal antivirus & Kaspersky (highly recommended)

Hope these helped.

Thank you.
