It could be one of many different problems related to the broad category of malware.
Software is considered to be malware when intent of the creator is hostile, distuptive or intrusive.
Malware includes computer viruses, worms, trojan horses, spyware, dishonest adware, scareware, crimeware, and other malicious and unwanted software or program. These software programs spread from one computer to another computer and interfere with computer operation.
A computer virus may corrupt or delete data on a computer.
Viruses spread to other computers in many different ways. Their impact varies from minor annoyances to data removal on the hard disk. Computer viruses are most easily spread by attachments in e-mail messages or less than adequate security measures. Take special care when opening e-mail attachments. Computer viruses can be disguised as attachments of funny images, greeting cards, or audio and video files. Computer viruses also spread by using downloads on the Internet. Computer viruses can be hidden in pirated software or in other files or programs that you may download. Anti-virus programs protect your computer by identifying infected files and helping preventing their transmission to the computers of family and friends.
