Information about computer viruses

What is a computer virus? (definition from Webopedia)

If you suspect you have a computer virus, here are some places to look for information.

Beware of "virus hoaxes"! If you get an email message saying "there is a new virus - forward this warning to everybody you know", you've probably gotten a "virus hoax" message. BEFORE you forward the message to anyone, please look at one of these "virus hoax" pages to see if you've been hoaxed. Otherwise you'll be spreading needless confusion and fear.
