Maybe a computer worm?

Commonly referred to as computer viruses, these are malicious software programs that compromise your data files and operating system structure. They sometimes run in the background without you even knowing they are they. And they s-l-o-w your system down.
Common types of malware are:
- Trojan Horses
Madison Geeks can remove any piece of malware that has found its way onto your computer.
These malicious programs are usually attached to an executable file, .pdf files, or a Microsoft Word document.
They are spread by file sharing, compromised or infected websites, as well as email attachment downloads. They compromise your security and can slow your system to a crawl.
Worms make their way into your system over a network connection or an infected downloaded file. They don’t need a host program to run. They self-replicate and infect other devices on the network you are using, either at home or work.
Every machine on your network can be compromised.
Which is why every computer needs to have antivirus along with malware Worms, on the other hand, don’t need a host program in order for them to run, self-replicate and propagate.
Once a worm has made its way onto your computer, usually via a network connection or as a downloaded file, it can then make multiple copies of itself and spread via the network or an internet connection infecting any inadequately-protected computers and servers on the network. Because each subsequent copy of a network worm can also self-replicate, infections can spread very rapidly.
Every device you own (computer, tablet, Android phone) needs to have a malware detection and removal program installed on it. While there is free-ware available that will help protect your device, most all do not automatically update to get the tools to protect against the latest threats.
It’s best that you purchase software that automatically updates with the latest malware/virus definitions and runs automatically, every day or every week, depending on how much you use your device and we can help you with an antivirus software solution.
