Malware In the minds of most computer users, the term “computer virus” includes many types of “malware”, not all of which are actually viruses: Trojan horses and worms, for example, work in different ways, and do not always replicate like viruses do, yet most people tend to include them as part of the virus family. While these programs are malicious, and can seriously damage your computer and your files, they function differently. ( Intego VirusBarrier X5 protects against all these types of malware.) A real virus is a small bit of computer code, or programming instructions, that can be executed, or run, on the type of computer it targets. For this reason, viruses written to attack Windows computers have no effect on Macintosh computers, and vice versa.
