Asked By 460 points N/A Posted on -


I have some knowledge about viruses but i don't know their activities. Which virus does what kind of problems to the PC ? Does anyone have any idea about the latest viruses? What can those virus do?

Some example will help us to identify which are the most dangerous. Recently I have experienced some attack of Sality or Trojan virus. Those viruses looked very dangerous to me and they  destroyed the system file and crashed the whole system.

Latest Antvirus is required to defend against those. I want to know about more viruses which can damage the whole system. Please tell me which is the worst virus for the system. I will be glad to know about it.
