You can normally tell if you have a virus because your computer may be running slower then usually.

What is quarantining in regard to computer protection?

Quarantining means, when a Anti-Virus has detected a virus trying to run itself, it usually quarantines it and then asks you if you wish to delete it, because you never know, it could be a false positive. Basically, when it quarantines it, it stops the virus program, and prevents it from running any longer, but it doesn't delete it from the system. When a virus is quarantined, it can do no harm.

How are viruses developed?

When creating a virus, you should think of the following: * What will it exploit? How will the virus enter a computer and not be detected? * How will the virus infect other programs? Is it a non-memory residential virus or a memory-residential virus? * How fast will it infect the host computer? In other words, will the virus spread extremely fast to destroy the computer as soon as possible or will it spread more slowly to make sure it is not detected by antiviruses? * How will the virus conceal itself? Will the virus infect antivirus programs to avoid detection, use polymorphism, or some other stealth function? Asking these questions allows you to have what virus in mind you want to make and lead the way to making the perfect specimen.
