A computer virus is the most subtle of computer problems. It usually loads itself into your computer system when you run a program to which it has attached itself. From the computer system, it'll then reproduce itself, much like a biological virus would, by attaching copies of itself to other programs on your hard drive. What it does then depends on the malevolence of its creator. Viruses can be very dangerous, destroying and changing data on computers, and like human viruses, they spread very quickly. It is therefore vital to prevent their entry into the University, and limit their spread if one does gain entry.
There can be no absolute guarantees about being able to avoid virus infection, but maintaining a good defence on your computer will help to prevent them. This surprising revelation can explain why so many computer users are suffering from viruses, trojans, worms, spyware and other types of malware -- despite running anti-virus software on their computers: An antivirus program by itself, is not sufficient for providing the trouble-free operation that you expect from your computer. Perhaps upgrading your antivirus program to a more secure 'internet security suite' might enhance your PC security tremendously.
