Against Malware and Trojan Viruses

Everybody hates virus! They are killing every single happy moments for all net surfers. They are everywhere! Just last month our other laptop break down because of virus and just to accept the fact it was my fault in some ways! Hurting on my side but nothing to do everything has an end. I do lot of surfing everyday and that was I used to since. It is hard for me to accept the fact that virus pull it down.

Now we bought NORTON anti-virus and many computer expert that Norton is the best killer most specially for malware and trojan virus.

According to what I found online in wisegeek the meaning of malware is :

A malware virus is a catch-all term for any annoying or harmful software that makes its way onto a computer or a network without the owner's awareness. The word "malware" comes from the phrase "malicious software." Software is considered to be malware depending on what the intention of its creator was. Computer viruses, worms, Trojan horses, spyware or any other form of unwanted software can be considered a malware virus. It is important to distinguish a malware virus from "bugs" or small defects in otherwise legitimate software.

And according to wiki:

A computer virus is a computer program that can copy itself[1] and infect a computer. The term "virus" is also commonly but erroneously used to refer to other types of malware, including but not limited to adware and spyware programs that do not have the reproductive ability. A true virus can spread from one computer to another (in some form of executable code) when its host is taken to the target computer; for instance because a user sent it over a network or the Internet, or carried it on a removable medium such as a floppy disk, CD, DVD, or USB drive. Viruses can increase their chances of spreading to other computers by infecting files on a network file system or a file system that is accessed by another computer.

Thanks to wiki and wisegeek.
