Windows Malware, Viruses and Spyware

Malware, or malicious software, is a class of software designed specifically to wreak havoc on a computer—your computer. Malware includes such nasty entities as viruses, Trojan horses, worms, and spyware. There are actually people who stay up late trying to dream up new ways of screwing up your PC, and apparently, not one of them can spell. A virus is a program or piece of code that "infects" other software by embedding a copy of itself in one or more executable files. A worm is a special type of virus that can infect a computer without any help from its user, typically through a network or Internet connection. A Trojan horse spreads itself by masquerading as a benign application (as opposed to infecting an otherwise valid file), such as a screensaver or even, ironically, a virus removal tool. A rootkit is a form of malware designed to conceal the fact that your computer has been infected. Spyware is a little different than the aforementioned viruses and worms, in that its purpose is not necessarily to hobble a computer or destroy data, but rather something much more insidious.
