    Computer viruses are basically programs that are written and developed by destructive people. If they enter your system, then they will infect the file stored. Whenever you restart your computer or execute the infect file or program, the virus gets active. Until you do not use the disk where the infected file is stores, the virus is inactive. Once it is loaded and saved your computer and save in the disk of the machine, the computer will crash down it. Hence, it is wise to format the system. Otherwise, they might damage you data, delete files or erase the entire hard drive. Viruses are of different types; some display messages; create sounds or send verbal comments.

    Well, I think that Nod32, Avast and Kaspersky 2010 are the best softwares which can protect your PC. Any other ideas?

    It needs to be treated so that it won't affect the major parts of your computer that may cause some serious problem with your computer eventually.

    I have read an article that Security Shield 2010 is the fact that is powered by BitDefender is the best antivirus today. The Shield Deluxe 2010 will protect your PC and personal data from theft, making it worth considering. However, my own personal choice would be Norton AntiVirus 2010 because it provides fast, responsive defense against all types of malicious software. Norton Protection System employs a multilayered set of security technologies that work in concert to detect, identify, and block attacks. And i used to use Norton products even before, for me its still the top of its class in terms of performance and works pretty well for me.

    There are a few things that you can do to protect from computer viruses. The key to protecting your computer is in understanding that no solution is perfect and that you should always trust your common sense before anything else. Then, there are some technical things that can be done:

    • Get anti-virus software and use it frequently. Keep it updated.
    • Visit only known sites and don't follow random links.
    • Open emails from trusted sources only, and from them also - try to understand if you're looking at legitimate email or at Spam/viruses (they go together hand in hand).
    • Delete the contents of your temporary Internet contents, and Recycle Bin frequently - this is a great place for viruses to hold their very private data, which goes undetected.
    • Keep up-to-date on modern virus techniques. You can read non-technical descriptions at plenty of site.
    • And last, keep in mind that there's always a change that a virus will hit you. Keep your data backed up at all times. Backup your work files, pictures and photographs, music and every other piece of data you'll need in case you need to setup your computer from scratch.
    • Your backup should be to a remote media. Remote FTP would work fine, but for Gigabytes of photographs data, you should consider backing up to CDs / DVDs. After making backup, don't forget to verify your data, so that when you need it, you can be sure that it's there!

    I guess the first line of defense against viruses, as with every potential computer disaster, is to make regular backups of the vital data stored on your hard drive. Ideally, you should periodically do this to a medium that's not continuously connected and accessible, to prevent a virus from infecting it too.

    I don't know if its true but there was a virus that can damage your hard drive by continuously writing on track 0 until it wears out.

    A Virus that spreads automatically or copies itself is a worm not a virus.

    The computer viruses are the programs, which are written to interrupt any other program in the computer. So prevention is to install an anti virus in the system.
    And i am using Avast for this purpose.
