This is some easy ways to check out where you may get it from. Its always important to find out where you got it from so you can remember that to the next time you might get another infection. IT (Information Technology) is all the time in big changes its all the time something new so is happening this its very important to try to hold your selfs up to date. When you have removed a lot of Viruses on your computer it might happen your computer wont be the same again since. To Cure a virus can also be very a pain in the ***. Since there is alot of side effects that the AV's programs can't take away. So its very hard to recover a system 100%. When a hacker already is in your system it can do vital damage on the computer. So remember to stay safe on the Internet. Don't take risks so might end your computer life. The Computer is most likely a Human. When human get a virus they might over live it or they might die. Same is with the computer it doesn't live for long if you don't take care of it.
