Malware. Most people have heard of it but few know what it really is and how much damage it can cause your PC or even yourself. Malware, or Malicious Software to give it its full name, is a piece of software that’s downloaded often unknowingly by you and infects your PC. The purpose of malware is to stop your PC functioning as it should, collect personal information or display unwanted adverts.
Viruses are just one type of malware but are more well known by the public. The main feature of viruses – just like human viruses – is once started, a virus will replicate itself and spread throughout your system. Viruses can also transfer to any other connected devices or any contact you may have with another person through email.
Types of Malware

Adware is software that allows adverts to be displayed where you don’t want them. They may appear as pop-ups on your desktop, banner ads or clickable icons. Their purpose is to generate revenue for the person who made them when you click on the ads.
As its name would suggest, spyware installs software that spys on you and your PC. It tracks your internet usage and how you use your system. Keyloggers, a type of spyware record the keystrokes you make and are able to steal passwords and other sensitive information you type.
A trojan horse, like its mythical namesake is a software package hidden within a seemingly safe software package. Trojans may be programmed to steal information, takeover system resources or shut down certain systems.
Worms replicate them self and are designed to destroy data or eat up system resources.
This software will lock you out of your system until you pay the coder a fee, effectively ransoming your system.
