Abbreviation of virus?
Usually, the word "virus" itself isn't abbreviated, but you may see a number of abbreviations used in their names. One example is W32 or Win32, commonly used by antivirus companies in naming viruses designed to run on 32-bit Windows, which includes operating systems like Windows XP and Windows 2000. Some antivirus companies use more specific ones; McAfee, for instance, adds "@mm" to the ends of the names of viruses and worms which mail themselves to addresses in a user's Outlook address book, for example (the "mm" stands for "mass mailer"). Many antivirus companies add "-gen" or ".gen" to the names of viruses detected as following the generic format of a virus in a certain group.

A virus is an obligate intracellular parasitic acellularmicroorganism, consisting of protein coat and nucleic acid DNA orRNA and may be enveloped or not. It is a particle that is notdefined as being alive, that goes inside you and attacks yourcells, and inserts their DNA into your cell, so that your… cellmakes more of the virus instead of making more of itself. If you mean in computers, its when malicious code is running inyour computer and doing damage. Just like a biological virus,computer viruses alter existing code and produce more copies ofitself. But it is just computer code and not anything that isalive. If you have this, you should run antivirus software or gethelp from a computer professional. (MORE)
You can get a virus by going on websites that contain avirus. But you would not know when the virus is in your desktops it can multiply depends what kind of virus is it when the computer slows down or something else, have a scan made by your computer when it is found delete or clean the virus.
Abbreviation An abbreviation is a way to shorten a word to save space. For example Ave. stands for Avenue and Apt. stands for apartment. An abbreviation (from Latin brevis "short") is a shorter form of a word . More particularly, an abbreviation is a letter or group of letters, taken from… a word or words, and employed to represent them for the sake of . For example, the word "abbreviation" can be abbreviated as "abbr." or "abbrev." (MORE)
Yup. In the general sense of the term "virus" (any malware that can be installed on a computer), there are some kinds of malware, usually called downloaders, which can actually download more malware to your computer, like fake antivirus software and programs that can steal information like passwor…ds and even banking information.

It is the shortened or contracted form of a word, a reduction inlength and/or the act or result of abbreviating
If you mean the conjunction , it's "that's." "That is" can also be abbreviated as "i.e." which is "id est" in Latin.
All viruses thrive on killing cells, and the only common pointof functions of all viruses is killing protists, fungi, bacteria oreven other viruses. . A virus injects it's own DNA or RNA into a living cell, trickingthe cell to start replicating the virus. After some time, the cellbecomes bloated wi…th the newly created viruses, and bursts. Now thenew viruses continue the process. A computer virus? Well, it can get in all you documents and files and prevent you from going on anything in your computer. Then you'll have to get it fixed and it's quite expensive. so it's best if you've got that thing where it tells you if something is dodgy or not, or do a McAfee scan or something. :) (MORE)
There is no abbrevation for for. There is a FOR loop which is a programming language statement that allows code to be repeated. *.for is a filename extension for FORTRAN, a computer programming language.
There is no Abbreviation of VIRUS. Its an Latin word which means "toxin or poison".. Plz search for Virus in google search engine for more details.
There are three different types of viruses. The first one is Macro Viruses. Macro Viruses use to infect and spread to other files viewed by that software. For example Word and Excel have macros and macro viruses can spread by exploiting these commands. The second type of virus is called Worms. Worms… duplicate themselves and use communications such as email to spread. They can look at your email address book and send themselves to users in your address book. The third type of a virus is called Trojan. Trojan Horses are programs that say they perform a particular function but in fact do something different, for real they could infect your computer with a virus or erase your files. Viruses can be stopped by activating an anti-virus program, this allows you to scan all of the files programs and everything else on your computer for viruses, and if it finds some then they will be deleted.

Because it makes the computer "sick" and not working right. And computer viruses spread, so it's like another word for saying a computer is "sick" and not working right. Viruses can spread computer to computer electronically kind of like how human viruses spread person to person. That's because a …computer virus can spread from computer to computer, and it basically makes the affected computers 'sick'. They don't work as well as they did without the virus, and they can even be destroyed. Try, next time, to make sure you question makes sense. Secondly, it's spelled virus. (MORE)
When you delete a virus from your system, it usually cannot run anymore because it's removed from the system. In some cases, the virus will have several files running at once, which can actually restore files you delete if you don't make sure they aren't running. That's why it's a good idea to use a…n antivirus program, which can do all this for you so you don't have to spend lots of time trying to rid yourself of a virus like that. (MORE)
A virus is a malicious piece of software that is downloaded onto your computer one way or another, and slows down your computer or steals your information. A virus can do practically anything on your computer. A virus is very bad .
nope, that really isn't possible as virus are acellular organisms and in order to reproduce themselves, they need a host cell. some of those virus contain genetic information, proteins inside them and no way to duplicate it. so what they do is invade a cell that can reproduce itself, and sneak the v…irus genetic information into the cell's DNA. once the DNA is replicated, the virus uses its proteins to cut the portions of its material genetic and it's done. the virus is replicated (MORE)

Signs of being infected with virus on computer: slow performance unable to launch programs etc. The best course of action is to have the infection removed as soon as possible.
Computer virus A computer virus is a computer program that can copy itself and infect a computer. The term "virus" is also commonly but erroneously used to refer to other types of malware, adware, and spyware programs that do not have the reproductive ability. A true virus can only spread from one… computer to another (in some form of executable code) when its host is taken to the target computer; for instance because a user sent it over a network or the Internet, or carried it on a removable medium such as a floppy disk, CD, DVD, or USB drive. Viruses can increase their chances of spreading to other computers by infecting files on a network file system or a file system that is accessed by another computer. The term "computer virus" is sometimes used as a catch-all phrase to include all types of malware, adware, and spyware programs that do not have the reproductive ability. Malware includes computer viruses, worms, Trojans, most rootkits, spyware, dishonest adware, crimeware, and other malicious and unwanted software, including true viruses. Viruses are sometimes confused with computer worms and Trojan horses, which are technically different. A worm can exploit security vulnerabilities to spread itself to other computers without needing to be transferred as part of a host, and a Trojan horse is a program that appears harmless but has a hidden agenda. Worms and Trojans, like viruses, may cause harm to a computer system's hosted data, functional performance, or networking throughput, when they are executed. Some viruses and other malware have symptoms noticeable to the computer user, but many are surreptitious or go unnoticed. Anti-Virus An Anti-Virus can detect and eliminate known viruses after the computer downloads or runs the executable. There are two common methods that an anti-virus software application uses to detect viruses. The first, and by far the most common method of virus detection is using a list of virus signature definitions. This works by examining the content of the computer's memory (its RAM, and boot sectors) and the files stored on fixed or removable drives (hard drives, floppy drives), and comparing those files against a database of known virus "signatures". The disadvantage of this detection method is that users are only protected from viruses that pre-date their last virus definition update. The second method is to use a heuristic algorithm to find viruses based on common behaviors. This method has the ability to detect viruses that anti-virus security firms have yet to create a signature for. Some anti-virus programs are able to scan opened files in addition to sent and received e-mails 'on the fly' in a similar manner. This practice is known as "on-access scanning." Anti-virus software does not change the underlying capability of host software to transmit viruses. Users must update their software regularly to patch security holes. Anti-virus software also needs to be regularly updated in order to prevent the latest threats. One may also minimize the damage done by viruses by making regular backups of data (and the operating systems) on different media, that are either kept unconnected to the system (most of the time), read-only or not accessible for other reasons, such as using different file systems. This way, if data is lost through a virus, one can start again using the backup (which should preferably be recent). (MORE)
a virus includes a script which overwrites your computers needed files. This can be your operating system, a startup file (e.g: a hive file) or many more sutem files.
IT is an abbreviation for the words Information Technology. It can also be semi shortened to info tech , information tech or info technology. Information technology is usually something to do with computers. hope this helps... =D
The contraction of "you are" is you're . An abbreviation is a shortened form often followed by a period. A contraction follows a spoken form of a word pair by omitting one or more letters (e.g. you've, he's, won't ).
Anti Meridian - for times after midnight and before noon. . Amplitude Modulation - signal processing and radio transmission (AM radio).
We're is the contraction of we are. Contractions are formed byreplacing the missing letters with an apostrophe.
If your computer effected by virus and if u don't of have any data in OS installed drive then just format it and then immediately install updated Anti- virus and scan whole computer without opening any drive.... then definitely it'll works ...
From Wikipedia: " The Michelangelo virus is a http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Computer_virus first discovered in April 1991 in http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/New_Zealand . http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Special:Wysiwyg?tid=wysiwyg#cite_note-0 The virus was designed to infect http://wiki.answers.com/w…iki/DOS systems (but did not engage the operating system or make any OS calls; Michelangelo, like all boot sector viruses, basically operated at the BIOS level) and remained dormant until http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/March_6 , the birthday of http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Renaissance artist http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Michelangelo . There is no reference to the artist in the virus, and it is doubtful that the virus writer intended Michelangelo to be referenced to the virus. Michelangelo is a variant of the already endemic http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Stoned_virus . On March 6, if the PC is an AT or a PS/2, the virus overwrites the first one hundred sectors of the hard disk with nulls. The virus assumes a geometry of 256 http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Cylinder_(disk_drive ), 4 http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Disk_read-and-write_head , 17 http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Disk_sector per track. Although all the user's data would still be on the hard disk, it would be irretrievable for the average user. On hard disks, the virus moves the original http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Master_boot_record to cylinder 0, head 0, sector 7. On floppy disks, if the disk is 360 KB, the virus moves the original boot sector to cylinder 0, head 1, sector 3. On other disks, the virus moves the original boot sector to cylinder 0, head 1, sector 14. . This is the last directory of the 1.2 MB disks. . This is the second-to-last directory of the 1.44 MB disks. . The directory does not exist on 720 KB disks. Although designed to infect DOS systems, the virus can easily disrupt other http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Operating_system installed on the system since, like many viruses, the Michelangelo infects the master boot record of a http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Hard_drive . Once a system became infected, any http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Floppy_disk inserted into the system (and written to; in 1992 a PC system could not detect that a floppy had been inserted, so the virus could not infect the floppy until some access to the disk is made) becomes immediately infected as well. And because the virus spends most of its time dormant, activating only on March 6, it is conceivable that an infected computer could go for years without detection --- as long as it wasn't http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Booting on that date after being infected. The virus first came to widespread international attention in January 1992, when it was revealed that a few computer and software manufacturers had accidentally shipped products, for example http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Intel's http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Intel_LANSpool print server, infected with the virus. Although the infected machines numbered only in the hundreds, the resulting publicity spiraled into "expert" claims of thousands or even millions of computers infected by Michelangelo. However, on March 6, 1992, only 10,000 to 20,000 cases of data loss were reported. The news media lost interest, and the virus was quickly forgotten. Despite the scenario given above, in which an infected computer could evade detection for years, by 1997 no cases were being reported in the wild." (MORE)
these are viruses that infect bacteria and fungi respectively. that is unless you are talking about something that infects other types of organisms, in that case there is no such thing as bacteria and fungi are types of organisms where as viruses are in the grey zone between living and nonliving.

Well, since that (Conflicker) worm did nothing and was just a lie, the worst worm ever probably will be ILOVEYOU, or loveletter. This worm has a love message (love-letter-for-you.txt.vbs), which is the virus. When opened, this virus attacks and sends a copy of itself to all your friends and contra…cts. I'll also like to put the virus known as Slammer next to the Loveletter worm, as it is just a powerful. Why? It infected 80,000 computer in half an hour. So it's name, Slammer, lived up to it as being the fastest virus ever. (MORE)
no it's possible but it's to much difficult to make it happen. A worm called stuxnet is the first malware that used this vulnerability,actiully after that kaspersky i think discovers it they made a report to windows who officialy admit it.
If the virus protector virus is imitating spyware but has not disabled your actual program, open your spyware and run a virus scan. This should find the virus or viruses on your computer and give you the option of removing the problem. If your actual spyware has been compromised, cannot find the vi…rus, or you have no spyware, try checking manually for the problem in your downloads file. You can find your downloads file by opening the Start menu, clicking on "Documents", then finding "Downloads" on the left side of the window that will open. If you see any files that you did not mean to download, or that look obviously threatening, delete them. You may also need to look at your installed programs, which you can do by searching "programs" or "installed programs" in your Start menu. Again, if you find any programs you do not want or that look threatening, uninstall them. If none of the above has removed the virus you can try a system restore. You can access system restore by searching "system restore" from your Start menu or by going from the Start menu and clicking "Control Panel" then "System and Security" then "Action Center" then "Recovery". When system restore opens you are able to choose what point you wish to restore your computer to. Your documents, photos, and videos will be saved, but downloads after the point you choose will be wiped out (including the virus). You need only choose a restoration point a few days before you first noticed the virus. System restore will restart your computer and make take several minutes. (MORE)
