How Many Computers Are Infected With Viruses?

Computer viruses plague over 30% of all computers in the US, and over 16 million households have had a virus infection within the past 2 years. Trojan viruses also make up the majority of all viruses with 76% of all viruses being a trojan type. American computers are also ranked in the top 10 most infected countries in the world.

How to protect your computer from a virus?

The easiest way to protect computer's from viruses and malware is by having strong antivirus software installed. Windows 10 comes with a decent antivirus software built into it from Microsoft called Windows Defender. If a computer is kept updated with Windows updates, then Windows Defender will work well to protect the computer. There are stronger antivirus software out on the market, but they are only as good as their updates and also keeping Windows updated. Any antivirus software will need updating almost daily to stay effective, as tens of thousands of new viruses come out each and every day.

How to check if your computer has a virus?

Most antivirus software can run scans to check for viruses. Antivirus software will generally have a regular or daily scan, as well as a deep or weekly scan. It is very necessary for these scans to run daily and weekly. Timely scans will prevent computers from being infected. The sooner the antivirus software finds the virus, the more likely it is to be able to be removed from the computer. Once again, antivirus software should be updated prior to running scans so it can identify the latest viruses.

How to get rid of a computer virus?

Antivirus software should detect the virus during it’s daily or weekly scan. Once it is detected, it will usually ask to either quarantine or delete a virus that it finds. One should always try to delete the virus, and only quarantine it as a last effort. Most viruses that have freshly infected a computer in the last few days can be removed through antivirus software. After a virus has infected a computer for several days or weeks, it will become harder and harder for the antivirus software to remove. If the virus has firmly taken hold of the computer, then a computer repair service will need to be hired to fully remove the virus or malware.
