The use of multiple anti-virus programs may cause your system to lockup. ... If you decide to install an alternate antivirus software, it is important that you first uninstall any other antivirus programs that may be running on your computer.

Can a user have an advantage from getting his/her computer infected by virus?
Yes, there are plenty of viruses out there that isn't that destructive and sorta give you some benefits like File compressor virus, a virus that creates self-replicating program, which will compress the files it infects, before attaching itself to them.

but at the end of the day, it depends, it depends of the type of virus that you got. If it's a somewhat good virus then great, if it's not then it can still be bad or good because it's a lesson for you.

Is it possible for the antivirus itself to have a virus?
yes, this might happen if you downloaded the antivirus from a sketchy website. This can also happen upon the installation of the antivirus, there will be a checkbox that says "install some of our products" or any similar text that will make your computer download software/files that will most likely bog down your machine.

Q. What is difference between virus and worm?
An important distinction between computer viruses and worms is that viruses require an active host program or an already-infected and active operating system in order for viruses to run, cause damage and infect other executable files or documents, while worms are stand-alone malicious programs that can self-replicate

Does having two Antivirus software affect the computer?

Sent from Topic'it App
yes, especially when both software's working at the same time. This will make your machine slower because of the fact that they're heavily using your system resources. If your on a laptop you may also experience faster battery drain.

if not utilized properly and if your machine isn't that decent then yes, this is because they utilize your cpu power, ram, hard drive, etc.

there are plenty of uses for them such as stealing sensitive data (credit cards, address, etc), mining cryptocurrency, and blackmailing. Meaning to say that most of the time they use it to get money.

A weird qusetion, do viruses tend to be somehow helpful in some ways?

Yes, in fact some viruses were created with the intention to be helpful rather than damage the system. An example is linux.wifatch, which infects home routers. It finds the remaining lines of code of viruses and removes them. This is a typical example of nematodes, viruses or worms that were created specifically for removing other viruses. However, since viruses function by self-replicating, nematodes would continuously replicate while protecting a system, and would use up both space and resources of a computer, which is why antivirus programs are more reliable and more prominent than nematodes in terms of protection against malware.

[quote="Shaira Ibel Gamueda"]Computer Virus

Am i doing this thing right? idk i dont get this website lol

I heard that viruses are "made" by companies to sell their software products, anti-virus, is that true?

And if it is true, i kind of understand that it is a relatively good industry but just as "being late" in work or stuff costs millions collectively (welp i just heard this from the news), dont viruses do as much as costing a lot of time waste? shouldn't an international whateves take action?

What do you think of some of the people's misconception of "virus" ?

Is there another threat to computers or data/information that is similar to a virus but not exactly a virus, like an orange and an apple

do people that sell anti-virus go to pirate sites, upload a file with virus and if they do, do they upload an anti-virus but is actually a virus? do they download their own pirated anti-virus but turns out it has virus now? are they even doing things that are still legal?

No, all viruses can be deleted as long as you manage to find and delete all instances of code of the virus. There are types of virus that seem undeletable, however, these just require a roundabout way of deleting them.
