A virus is an unwanted program that, in almost all cases, the user accidentally installs onto his or her computer. Some are relatively harmless and cause little, if any, damage. Some are much more hazardous and can render the information on your computer's hard drive useless.
So why do people make viruses?
Well, some (maybe
most) do it just to see if they *can* do it. Some are genuinely looking
to cause havoc. Others, and these are the ones to watch, are trying to
get personal information from you. Many of the viruses out there are used
to send their creator information from your computer via e-mail. Sure,
there are more than just those 3 reasons, but I believe those are probably
the primary ones.
