SynergeoInfections (Virus, Trojan, Spyware or Malware) Removal Service

A computer virus is a computer program that can copy itself and infect a computer. The term "virus" is also commonly but erroneously used to refer to other types of malware, adware, and spyware programs that do not have the reproductive ability. A true virus can only spread from one computer to another (in some form of executable code) when its host is taken to the target computer; for instance because a user sent it over a network or the Internet, or carried it on a removable medium such as a floppy disk, CD, DVD, or USB drive. Viruses can increase their chances of spreading to other computers by infecting files on a network file system or a file system that is accessed by another computer.

Spyware is a type of malware that is installed on computers and collects little bits of information at a time about users without their knowledge. The presence of spyware is typically hidden from the user, and can be difficult to detect. While the term spyware suggests that software that secretly monitors the user's computing, the functions of spyware extend well beyond simple monitoring. Spyware programs can collect various types of personal information, such as Internet surfing habits and sites that have been visited, but can also interfere with user control of the computer in other ways, such as installing additional software and redirecting Web browser activity. Spyware is known to change computer settings, resulting in slow connection speeds, different home pages, and/or loss of Internet or functionality of other programs.

Malware, short for malicious software, is software designed to infiltrate a computer system without the owner's informed consent. Malware includes computer viruses, worms, Trojan horses, spyware, dishonest adware, crime ware, most rootkits, and other malicious and unwanted software. Most of the times, viruses are spread by hackers through internet with virus-tainted spam that steals banking passwords and other sensitive information. Most often they target users through social networking websites or a fake program which replicates itself on the users' PC as a known application, software or update.
