Don't be seduced by a virus
There are many computer viruses today that are constantly being detected and reported in order to make others aware of the threat. Some of these
viruses have become so wide spread, that they have forced virus protection companies to up the anti on viruses and enhance their development of
detecting viruses before they can cause wide spread attack.
One in particular and quite well known virus spread furiously over the internet, through emails, going unnoticed and undetected for a long period of

This virus became so well known that it even once became the subject of the popular American t.v series 'Friends' in which one of the character's

helpfully highlighted the ultimate distress a virus can cause, a topic that many people are non too aware of, yet are still easily fooled by.
The antivirus industry are aware of the development and spread of viruses that are emerging each day and are becoming more and more developed
themselves on how to detect and tackle the problem. They are effectively advancing their technology to
