Malware

Type of software

Made to infect other peoples computer

Doesn't need a person's permission in order to activate itself

Usually designed to cause your computer to run slow

Some can re-install itself even after you think you have completely removed it

It can multiply

Much more easier to get it then to get rid of it

Just like a virus, in the sense that it infects your computer, but malware doesn't need you to "open it", it automatically does it.

How To Prevent Malware

Make your computer notify you every time, a program is trying to be downloaded onto your computer

Have a anti-virus program installed onto your computer

Install a pop-up blocker

Be careful when you are sharing your files with others

Read the fine print on what you are downloading
