Netgenz - Technology Computer and Internet A computer virus is a computer program that can reproduce itself and spread by inserting copies of itself into other programs or documents.
This computer virus can also make the performance of the computer/laptop weak, slow, and can damage the computer itself. Who wants a computer like that, right? I'm sure you've experienced something like that.
1. Knowing the Main Dissemination Media
First, you have to know the distribution media. At least you know the distribution media in order to prevent Viruses/Malware from entering your computer/laptop.
The first, the Internet. Who does not know the Internet in this modern era with its sophisticated technologies? Surely everyone already knows. When browsing or downloading a file (music, video, zip/rar, etc.) on the Internet. Most likely Virus/Malware will be hidden in those files. Or maybe the website can also be affected (by irresponsible people). And all the data contained in the website will be entered into the computer via the internet network.
The second, from storage media such as Flashdisk, Memory Card, and the like. For example, you have transferred files via Flashdisk on a friend's computer that has been infected with a virus. As a result, the viruses that are on your friend's computer will also be carried into the Flashdisk.
Solution: Install a trusted antivirus application.

2. Install Anti-Virus Applications
Install the Anti-virus application on your computer so that your computer is safe from viruses. If you want to be more effective, install two anti-viruses at once. The first is local anti-virus and the second is international.
If you want to know about local and international antivirus applications, Computer Blog will provide the article here:
1. Local Antivirus
2. Antivirus International
3. Diligently Scan Storage Media
Storage media are often infected with viruses. Therefore, scan your storage media as often as possible so that there are no viruses hidden in your storage media.
The method? As I mentioned above. Use a trusted antivirus.
4. Don't lend a laptop/computer to just anyone
Not that I teach you to be stingy, but this is for the benefit of all of you. Why? Because if you lend your Laptop/Computer to just anyone, including your friends (who don't understand computers) then it's better not to lend it! It's okay to lend it if you accompany your friend who is borrowing to know more about what he's doing.
If not? Yes, it's possible that your friends just use a laptop, plug it into a USB/Flashdisk, surf the Internet, or something else that he doesn't even know anything about viruses.
