It is nothing more than a program that someone wrote. It is called a virus because the programmer wrote it with malicious intent. These programs are designed to make a copy of themselves whenever they can. Usually the programmer wrote the program to target a specific file or type of file (document, picture or dll). Whenever you open an infected file, the program will load itself into memory where it will reside. When you open a different file, the program will make a copy of itself and paste it to the new file without the user's knowledge, thus infecting the new file. Sometimes people inadvertently (or purposefully) send these files to other people via e-mail.
A computer virus is a program that can duplicate itself and multiply from one computer to another. There are various computer viruses, and all they do is damage the computer system's data or interfere with its performance.

Computer viruses are malicious scripts, codes, or programs that acts like a biological virus to some extent. Computer viruses can replicate themselves. They can also transfer from one computer to another by attaching themselves with the file that is being transferred.
A computer virus is when your computer has been attacked and destroyed. The internet shuts down and everything just stops working. If you ever get a virus just take it up to best buy and geek squad can remove it for you. I took mine up there. It cost 284.18. You will have to pay so be prepared.

just look up the word virus. Virus on itself is a non organic "robotic" sort of, program that can either be program to bombard and destroy critical system functions.
You have the parasiting viruses. (copy itself on critical system files and takes control of your computer). You have the destructive viruses. Mbr worms, generaly destroy partitions and or format your HDD.
You have the soft kill viruses, Those install a multitude of latent viruses over a period of time and slowy and efficiently start coorupting your data and access permission, until the point you can no longer log on.
badly coded soft kill viruses give themselves up by not allowing you to install any popular anti-virus softwares.
It's a disgusting thing that moves into your computer uninvited with a whole lot of suitcases and even a couple of steamer trunks.Once it has hung up its coat,it opens four suitcases and a single trunk to start with.The suitcases contain pop-up ads,fake security systems,and "too good to be true" links.The affected computer then tells you a series of lies about what to click on,and then when you do,you end up with pop-up ads,fake security systems and links that just bring more grief.Ofen it will replace your browser,install its own toolbar or just blank your screen to white with the name of its sponsoring company in huge letters in the middle of your screen and now suddenly thats all you have access too.It will also install cryptic icons on the lower right hand strip of your PC telling you to press more buttons,and get more virusses.

A virus is a software created by someone to automatically run in your computer when you aren't looking. It will slowly draw information from your accounts and then crash your computer. That is the most basic type of virus.
a virus that attacks your computer...and if someone says that a computer virus is nothing they are really dumb... at our school they wont let us download games because they say that some games have viruses on them and they can mess up your laptop and make it run slower
It's a sickness that infects a computer, just like a real virus, it grows, except computer viruses grow when the attacker updates the virus with more code. Some are more dangerous and some are not as much.
computer virus is nothing more than program that developed by the programmer. that program have some coding that install itself and hang your pc and also copy-paste files itself. there are many antivirus program available nowadays that can remove simple virus easily.
