Computer usage has changed following the introduction of broadband connections. An increasing number of people use their computers every day and leave them connected to the internet when they are not in use. If your computer is constantly online, it can become a security threat for the owner and other internet users.

What is a virus?
The most common threat today is a virus. A virus consists of small program parts that fasten to other programs. Some viruses are intentionally implanted in programs, while others can be unintentional programming errors. A virus can cause a computer to report strange error messages, crash, or perform undesirable actions.

As an internet user, you should think about your responsibility towards other internet users by keeping your computer secure. This will keep you from contributing to the spread of a virus.
