Computer viruses are little unpleasant programs designed by expert computer programmers. Some of these virus programs are written to cause annoyance to the computer operator without really causing hazard to the computer. For example, someone may write a program that when run, it keeps opening and closing the computer's CD ROM without causing much damage to the system. Other viruses can be very destructive to the system. Viruses are very common in computer application and they constitute about 80% computer system crash.

Types of computer virus:

·         Those that attach themselves to executable files (.exe files) and spread to other programs when the program is run.

·         Trojan horse: This virus program disguises itself as a good program and causes damage when loaded.

·         Boot Sector Virus: This type of virus hides itself in the master boot record (MBR) and can cause boot problems to the system.
