virus

Post by James Trotta » Tue Jul 20, 2004 11:05 am

A virus is a computer program the damages your computer. ESL go.com has a quick online virus vocabulary class.

http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPORT/na ... 1209131106 has some very technical information about types of viruses and how they differ from worms and Trojan horse programs.

Congratulations on becoming a vocabulary fan (since you now have more than 10 posts)! As for virus, there's the easy version: virus = a bad program that damages a computer.

Most people don't have to know the hard version about viruses, worms, Trojan horses, etc.

This is a good chance to practice English. You can talk about lots of different subjects and make lots of pen pals if you want.

I will try to correct vocabulary mistakes here. However, depending on how many people are writing and how busy I am teaching I probably won't have time to fix all mistakes.

Virus it's a head ache, one can stay all day long trying to make the computer run well. I have had so many times this problem with my computer that I was about to by a new one. Luckily, "Dell" have help me a great deal and now it's working great.

A virus is a huge headache. I think I bought my current computer because the old one caught a nasty virus or two.

i personally had experience with virus.
not a fun thing i tell that, especially if is a urgent matter.
it could be frustrating due to slowness of the computer cause by the virus.
you could prevent by buying ant virus program. normally last only a year than it must be replace with a newer version.

Yes I have, this one time I had 237 viruses. I had to take it to be repaired professionally, it just shut down completely and would continuously open files and do random weird things.
Aww that sucks :(
At least it's all cleared up now.

Hi friends,
I know that virus is not a hardware , it is a program . This program is used to corrupt the other program . In the simply we can say that it is a virus or malicious program. To prevent this type of the program, we uses the anti virus program. Thanking you.
