What is Virus Removal?
Virus Removal really has two parts, detection and removal. First, what is a virus? A computer virus has been defined as an intrusive program not intended to be on a computer that once there will start to copy and replicate its own code filling up storage and eating the data once there. This could cause loss of data, but also damage the storage device and cost money by having to then have the virus removed.
What is Malware?
Malware, on the other hand, has a similar start, but instead of causing damage, it hides and waits in the hidden areas so that it can collect information and send it back to its original source. These days, the terms have become intertwined. For most computers a off the shelf anti-virus will for detection and will notify you of a virus.
