Symptoms of Malware and Virus infection
Many times you can tell that your computer is infected with malware and / or virus files by these symptoms:
- Your Internet browser start page has changed.
- You notice many pop-up pages while on the Internet.
- There are screens asking you to pay for removal of virus and malware files that you have never heard of.
- You notice strange programs and icons on your computer and the desktop.
- You recently downloaded a free program to get music, icons, games or coupons.
Most of these symptoms can be reversed, but depending on the severity and amount of files, it may require a complete reinstallation of your operating system.
