Active viruses means that they are currently on your computer and destroying it. Hidden viruses means that they are viruses that are about to attack your computer.

A hidden virus is known in the words in its name "HIDDEN virus". It hides and stays inactive. The active virus is also known in its name too "ACTIVE virus". The two viruses have different ways on spreading it own kind throughout the host or hosts.

I think it is different because hidden virus stays inside the cell until the body gets weak, and then it gets active. So they dont show the symptoms like the active virus does. And the active virus will show symptoms once it gets into the body, so we will eat medicines to kill the virus. So for the viruses, it is good to be a hidden virus.

The easiest way to understand how viruses replicate is to study the life cycles of viruses called bacteriophages (bacteria eaters). Bacteriophages replicate by either a lytic cycle or a lysogenic cycle. The difference in these two cycles is that the cell dies at the end of the lytic cycle or the cell remains in the lysogenic cycle. The virus remains "hidden".

hidden viruses take their time and wait until they make the host cell produce more of the virus.. kind of like a ninja, waiting to spring at any moment. The genes of a hidden virus remain in your cells forever. You can never get rid of them and they can become active at any time. An active virus makes you sick right away (like a cold), but after your body has cleared it out it is gone for good and it can never make you sick again.

It is an active virus. Hidden viruses are viruses that don't go into action immediately and hide out for a while in your tissues. Once you are infected with a cold virus, you usually become ill right away and once you are over that bout of the flu, the virus will be gone and not lingering around in hiding to come back with symptoms later. Other viruses that are hidden can lie dormant in your tissues for years.

Well think of latent viruses as viruses that are sleepy and don't do much to your body, active viruses are well basically active viruses.

Active Viruses: When a virus enters a cell and it is active it causes the host cell to make new viruses

Yes that is how hidden viruses invade because hidden viruses hide in the DNA of your cells and are copied and kill your cells once the virus is copied.

They are not active and do not make new viruses.

it is an active virus! : )

Active (non-killed) viruses are living organisms.

Influenza is an active virus.

A cold is an active virus.

when a virus enters a cell and is active, it cause the host cell to make new viruses, which destroy the host cell.

Because it spreads more quickly than a hidden virusBecause the influenza viruses begin affecting you as soon as you are infected and start reproducing as soon as they are in the target cells of your respiratory system. Active viruses do not invade and then remain dormant to produce new symptoms in the future (sometimes the distant future).

Active viruses are causing a disease at this time. Some can become dormant for a time and can be reactivated. Examples are cold sores and shingles.

They are active only when they are inside a living host cell.

There are no active viruses that affect Mac OS X.

When it is inside a living cell.

Viruses are different by their size. Fungi is biggest, then bacteria, and then Viruses.

There are many examples of modern, active viruses. An example of this is the common cold. A virus needs a host to reproduce and viruses range in size from between 20 and 300 nanometers.

A hidden virus becomes active when like say if you get sick the virus would become active then because it has a greater chance of tearing down your system .

There are no active viruses that attack Mac OS X.

They are not hidden, when you get measles, you would get symptoms right away.
