It's a sick world out there. Lurking in some basement is some wacky techno-geek. Ready to release the next computer virus over the net. A virus is a file that executes by itself. It damages your desktop PC by replicating and attaching to your programs and destroying everything in sight. Recent remedies have proven to be helpful. Software like eTrust EZ Antivirus 2005 can provide virus detection and protection at a pretty cheap price. Also, network providers such as AOL are starting to provide virus protection software you can download. In some cases for free. Unfortunately, because another type of virus is always being created it is important to update this protection software regularly.
