    there are many types of viruses. these can be brought in by downloading something like an email. one of the worst ones is a trojan virus, which originates from the Mongolian trojan horse, which was brought in thinking it is something good and will all of a sudden start messing up the town, the the trojan virus is very much like a trojan horse, will look like something standard then will all of a sudden start attacking your computer.

    there is also malicious software, which could tracks what you type or something like that.

    the best way to prevent this is an antivirus program like avg or norton 360.

    A computer virus is a program unannounced to the user on a computer that self replicates.

    Sorry, can't give any examples. I haven't ever had one.
