Today we had a webinar in the library. Today we were learning what to do when a virus comes onto your computer.
Firstly you will know if its a virus if the message is offering you money.
Secondly you can also tell that its a virus because usually it will have a made up brand.
Finally some viruses ask you for your credit card number or your address. Usually when you go to buy things off the internet it wont be a virus, but if it just randomly pops up and asks you for any of your details its probably a virus or a scam.
You can protect you self from viruses by updating your computer when needed. You can also get a very strong password. One more thing you can do is report the scam/virus.
