What damage can a virus do to my computer?

A computer virus attaches itself to another program or replaces it by overwriting it so that it can reproduce itself without you knowing it.

It can quickly use up all the available memory on your computer and seriously slow down the system, and even stop it completely.

Viruses can:

  • damage data files
  • destroy files
  • make disks unreadable
  • even cause damage they weren’t designed to.

We recommend that you install anti-virus software like Cogeco’s Security Services.
