Forest Edge Computer Services - Virus and Spyware

A virus is a malicious computer program that is self replicating on your system often without your knowledge.

It has the potential to interrupt the smooth running of your machine and also has the potential to delete files from your hard drive, including your important data files, documents and emails.

Viruses can destroy your data, allow others access to your personal details (including credit card information) slow up your computer and internet connection or generally be a nuisance in everyday computing tasks.

Adware, Spyware, Scareware, Ransomware these threats have many names & with the increase in internet services & usage can be less of a threat but the functions of Spyware extend well beyond simple monitoring.

Spyware programs can collect various types of personal information, but can also interfere with user control of the computer in other ways, such as installing additional software, redirecting web browser activity or diverting advertising revenue to a third party.
