Windows Virus

A Windows Virus is a small bit of executable code that spreads when users open infected files or applications. There are so many Windows viruses and other forms of malware that it is difficult to get a good estimate of how many exist: figures range from several hundred to more than a million.[1] Windows viruses and malware do not affect Macs, but Mac computers can act as an asymptomatic carrier, allowing users to pass infected files on to friends and colleagues using Windows.
