The world of the internet is filled with great knowledge and expertise and almost anything and everything. However as amazing as the internet is, it is also filled with an endless amount of spyware, malware and what most people call viruses. A computer virus is a harmful software program that is loaded on an indidivuals computer without them realizing. This virus then self-replicates and inserts itself into other files/ programs and infects them in the process.
Statistically, one of the main ways a computer gets infected is when the user accepts whatever appears on their screen without reading the prompt. For example, while surfing the web, one may come across an advertisement or a pop-up that displays that your device has been infected. Without fully understanding the pop-up, one may accept the prompt and end up downloading some sort of unique plug-in that may end up harming the device even more.
With any device, many people have come across the "Free" antivirus software and the big question is "Does it work?" Unfourtunately, numerous people get sucked into this trap and end up downloading "free" antivirus software and end up hurting their devices even more. These scammers make money off of the advertisements and tracking by installing junkware onto the device.
