How many viruses are there?
At last count, there are over 11,000 viruses, and the list grows at about at least 50 new viruses per month. As you would guess this certainly is enough to keep the anti-virus software producers in business.

How do you stop a virus once you discover you have one?
Call the Help Desk or a qualified technical person immediately. Since viruses can constitute a serious threat to a data intensive organization such as a law firm, it is absolutely imperative that virus outbreaks are quickly isolated, identified, and treated so it prevents their continued spread. Your contacting the Help Desk to get experienced people dispatched on the problem is the best way to check a virus attack.

Why do people write viruses and other destructive software?
Certain people get a thrill from using their intimate technical knowledge of software, computers, and human behavior, to write destructive software which wreaks havoc in the workplace. Another chief reason that viruses are written is to seek revenge against Americans for being ahead in computer technology and in the business environment. Since it is now illegal to write software which destroys other software and data, the people who write viruses are not only doing it to get a thrill, they are also breaking the law and they risk severe criminal and civil penalties if they are caught.

What do hackers use computer viruses for?
A. A few years ago, hackers sought recognition and fame. Today, these criminals usually try to use malicious software to steal money from their victims. Viruses and worms are usually used to:

Take control of your computer with the aim of using it for fraud without your knowledge. This is particularly true with the development of high-speed Internet access tools like cable modems and ADSL.
Install spyware to gather your personal information without your knowledge when you surf the Internet. A hacker could obtain your password to access your savings accounts, or your credit card number when you make online purchases.

What to do if you suspect your computer is infected
Install or update your antivirus program and launch a full system scan.
Do not use your computer to do your online banking until the problem has been resolved.
If you have given out personal information or believe your password may be compromised, contact an AccèsD Services advisor to change your AccèsD password by calling 1-866-779-COOP (1-866-779-2667), Monday to Friday from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 8.am. to 8 p.m.
If the problem persists after a system scan by your antivirus program, contact your Internet service provider or the computer support department of the store where you purchased the computer.
You can also use free scans generally offered by most antivirus software suppliers

Answering the question:
How do you know if you have a virus in your computer?
Viruses can be identified using an antivirus program installed in your computer.
You can also regularly check your files and monitor changes in your computer after accessing malicious files from external sources

A normal user may not have benefits from computer viruses but if the user is a hacker yes it has. Like for example, a computer virus can be used to steal people's personal information. Although illegal, this can be very useful and profitable for those stealing and then selling on or using the information gained in this way.

A virus can be a way for a hacker or programmer to show off his ability. Some firms even hire ex-hackers to create virus protection and other types of software.

A virus is able to take control of a person's computer.
Online advertising is often targeted by hackers, who make money from virus-related scams (for example 'click jacking')

clicking Control Panel, and then, under System and Security, clicking Review your computer's status. Click the arrow button next to Security to expand the section. If Windows can detect your antivirus software, it will be listed under Virus protection

The ILOVEYOU virus is considered one of the most virulent computer virus ever created and it’s not hard to see why. The virus managed to wreck havoc on computer systems all over the world, causing damages totaling in at an estimate of $10 billion. 10% of the world’s Internet-connected computers were believed to have been infected. It was so bad that governments and large corporations took their mailing system offline to prevent infection.

Yes, if the virus can't be detected. There are also certain viruses that cannot be detected by any anti virus program.Viruses that can cause heaps of damage to your computer but still no one can detect that they are the real culprit.
