Discover If A Computer Has Virus, Spyware, or Malicious Programs

Okechukwu Solomon November 26, 2016 EDITEdit

As human are not free from deficiency syndromes called virus so also our computers are not free from malicious software (malware) called virus, but one thing common about both the human virus and computer virus is that these virus infections are directly or indirectly caused by oneself.

Discover If A Computer Has Virus

What does malicious software (virus) really mean? It is software that is specifically designed to gain access or damage a computer without the knowledge of the owner.

How to Discover if Your Computer Has Virus, Spyware, or Malicious Programs

  1. The computer is really slow.
  2. Nothing responds when you click on an icon and/or your software applications do not work correctly anymore.
  3. Your antivirus security system and/or firewall are suddenly disabled.
  4. You can’t access your disk drive or hard drive.
  5. You are suddenly unable to print.
  6. You can’t access your disk drive or hard drive.
  7. You start seeing pop up advertisement windows at unexpected (random) times or unusual programs that start automatically.
  8. You have major problems trying to install or download antivirus software or any other software. 
  9. New browser homepage, new toolbars and/or unwanted websites accessed without your permission.


As I said earlier computer virus infection are most time directly or indirectly caused by oneself, by installing crack version of a software, downloading software from unreliable website etc.

Note:  Some malware (virus) can over power most antivirus software and it will make the computer vulnerable for malicious actions.

The major way to keep your information or document save on your computer is to be mindful of the Software, USB Drive and Website that you associate with your computer.
