hi i have recently been wondering about those spyware viruses that are good at hiding them selfs does anyone know good ways to know if you have a virus that trys to hide itself are there any signs? or ways to check?
many people can get infected and not even know if you know any ways to find out if your infected? :thumbsup:


ps some people make virus to seal money or find personal info (creeps but there is some benifet out of it right?) but then there are the people theat make viruses that do nothing but let you know there there why make a virus that doesn't benifit you at all?

Most anti-virus and anti-malware applications will find the files even if they hide themselves, so keep your definitions current and scan your hard-drive on a regular basis. Always watch warnings from your firewall.
Also, be sensitive to any change in your computer's performance, and note anything at all unusual; these are indications that you may be infected.
Regards,
John
