In recent weeks, my computer has been infected with malware and adware that just would not quit. A*G G*****t failed to remove them. S****t just froze up. Another anti-virus program just sat there and looked at me. So I purchased Exterminate It! This was the only anti-virus program I could find that would recognize and remove particularly pesky viruses from my computer. But even more impressive, they allow subscribers to send in descriptions of new viruses they encounter, and they will design a way to remove the virus and send out to you an update. I submitted the description of a virus to them, and a couple of days later they sent to me an update that cleanly removed it. If you run into viruses that just won't quit, give this anti-virus program a try. It's cheap and removes the viruses that the other anti-virus programs can't touch for some reason.

Win32.SDBot!Backdoor!Server.Vari Categorized as:
Worms are generally considered to be a subset of viruses, but have key differences. Unlike a virus, a worm is a computer program that replicates, but does not infect other files. Instead, a worm installs itself on a computer and then looks for a way to spread to other computers.
From a user’s perspective, there are noticeable differences. The longer a virus goes undetected, the more files it will infect on the victim computer. By contrast, there is just a single instance of the worm code on the computer.
Like viruses, worms are often subdivided according to the methods they use to infect a system. E-mail worms are distributed as attachments to e-mail messages. IM worms are attached to messages sent with instant messaging programs (such as IRC or ICQ). P2P (peer-to-peer) worms use file-sharing networks to spread. Network worms spread directly over the LAN (Local Area Network) or across the Internet, often exploiting a specific vulnerability.
Of all trojans, backdoor trojans pose the greatest danger to users’ PCs because they give their authors remote control over infected computers. They are downloaded, installed, and run silently, without the user’s consent or knowledge. Upon installation, backdoor trojans can be instructed to send, receive, execute and delete files, gather and transfer confidential data from the computer, log all activity on the computer, and perform other harmful activities.
