What should I do if I get a virus warning?


If the warning is generated by your anti-virus program take it seriously. Follow the anti-virus program instructions which will probably ask you whether you want it to delete the offending file or commit it harmlessly to a quarantine folder. If in doubt, call in a computer specialist.

Virus are not the only type of 'infection'. To detect and eradicate other types of malicious software, many computer users run such utilities as Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware.

Which ever protecting programs you use it is important to update their 'data-definition' frequently.
