You might be wondering how your computer could be infected with malware? Let me answer that for you. The main sources of infections are from internet downloads, email attachments, removable flash drives, and data files located on a local area network.
Before malware can infect your pc, it needs to be installed. The first step to the initial infection is when the user executes the file; you will usually find that malware will use tricky techniques allowing it to secure at least one execution in every boot up process. Malware uses startup, a component of the computer operating system and in most cases, to start itself on every boot sequence.
