Nowadays viruses have created many problems for Home and Business users, I have seen many PC’s becoming virus houses from where viruses spread to other PC’s. These viruses usually spread through removable media (Flash Drives), where they place their autorun.inf files and when anyone opens the drive in his PC, it also became virus deceased.
Many people complaint that they have installed Anti-Virus but it came of no use, because virus was not detected by the Anti-virus program. There can be two reasons for it. Either the program is not performing it’s job or Updated virus definitions were required.
Without keeping an Anti-Virus Up-to date, it is not guaranteed that the virus will be detected. It is an important aspect of the Anti-Virus which should be looked into.
Some people suggest that if you have got a virus then format your hard disk to get your system virus free. But if you do some mistakes then the whole time of installing windows will be wasted, since the virus will again become active in no time. I have kept in mind this point also. So read the following carefully.
