How To Know if your PC is infected with Viruses, Trojans or Malwares
Your computer just crashed because of some virus you couldn’t really detect? Or you failed to rectify it at an earlier stage? In most of the cases that’s what the problem turns out to be. Different viruses have different functional programs, and hence it's not easy to identify them, and throw them out of your computer. But there are surely some preventive measures you could take to identify them at an early stage, and get them rectified. Here are some of them –
Programs shut down : Programs dont crash suddenly until and unless the computer is infected with some form if virus or trojan. It links itself to various codes at the same time and thus end up in the computer getting hanged more than often.
Network traffic : Despite the internet being turned off, if downloads and uploads continue to take place, its a case of viruses either uploading your personal data to some remote computer, or downloads of viruses that end up corrupting your software. To avoid this, keep a strict security over your wireless connections.
