A computer virus is like a real virus in that both are infectious. Real viruses can travel from person to person, and computer viruses can travel from computer to computer. And of course, both computer viruses and real viruses have harmful effects on the organisms or computers which become infected by them.

As the internet grew the vectors for virus infection grew. During the early years of personal computers, virus spread as people passes infected files back and forth on floppy disks. Now they can be passed through anything from infected shareware to java apps embedded in websites. Viruses can be prevented, or slowed down by using active scan anti-virus software like AVG or Microsoft Security Essentials. If your computer does become infected, a local computer tech can help you remove the virus.
