How to install an antivirus program on a computer.

What is a quick and deep or full antivirus scan?
A quick scan checks common areas for computers viruses. Scanned areas can include the computer memory and common areas of the hard drive, including the temporary Internet files and the operating system directory. Typically a quick scan takes less than 30 minutes to complete.

A full scan checks every area of the computer, including memory, hard drives and sometimes any external devices connected to the computer, like external hard drives and USB flash drives. Because the full scan checks everything, it takes longer to perform the scan. Depending on how much memory and hard drive space a computer has, it could take 30 minutes to several hours to complete a full scan.

What is the name of the viruses that fool a user into downloading and/or executing them by pretending to be useful applications?
A better question would be how to stop such viruses from infecting your computer, because these viruses come in all different shapes, sizes and names, so to speak. And knowing what they are called will not help you stop them.

Beware - a LOT of "attachment virus emails" going around

I recommend a free program called Avast, and also running something called malwarebytes regularly to make sure you haven’t downloaded and installed any malware. Also examine your Activity Monitor (OSX) to see if anything you don’t recognize is running.

Answering the question:
How are computer viruses spread?

In order to spread through a computer system, or network, a virus must be activated; meaning, the file that contains the virus must be opened, or executed in order for the virus to come to life. Once activated, viruses look for certain programs to infect, depending on what they've been programmed to do. The one thing that all viruses seem to do well is duplicate themselves within the programs they find, and that is how they spread.

Bad apps
The most common way for a smartphone to get infected is by downloading an app that has a virus or malware embedded inside the app code. When the app is installed, the virus or malware infects the smartphone operating system, like Android OS or iOS.

The best method to check and protect a computer for computer viruses is to use an antivirus program. Many antivirus programs are available to choose from, but the better-rated brands are Kaspersky, Symantec, Trend Micro, and MSE. You can get just the basic antivirus program or a full antivirus suite, which often include other types of protection beyond just virus protection. You can also try using a free online virus scanner to check for viruses on your computer.

Well it is hard to tell what the most dangerous computer virus on the computer is now days because of the vast amount of information that hits the web every day I can tell you that recently many people have been worried about a virus called Zeus v3. And it works by stealing money out of people’s bank accounts. So I can see why that one would b one of the most dangerous computer viruses. you don’t need any one figuring out all of your personal bank info or any at that note.

Since November 1987 when the Internet Worm created by Robert T. Morris, Jr. wreaked over $100 million worth of problems on computers connected to the Internet, it has been obvious that having computers connected on a computer network increased the possibility of virus infections. That is not to say that networks are bad, in fact networks are becoming more and more essential and valuable all the time. It's just that being online on a network, a BBS, or dialed into a remote computer increases the possibility of contact with viruses.
