Viruses and other malware are common problems for any computer, including laptops. Depending upon the exact infection, a wide range of problems can occur, from annoying pop-ups to missing fails or corrupted hard drives. We recommend having a malware/virus program on your computer that is active and scanning any files you may download/open. If something looks shady, don’t open it either.
