Formally defined by Fred Cohen in 1983 computer virus is a malicious software program loaded on a user's computer to perform malicious actions.

The term Malware and Virus are often used interchangeably but they are technically different. Therefore, understanding the difference between Malware and virus is important. “Virus” is just one type of Malware while “Malware” is an umbrella term that refers to malicious software. This includes computer virus, Trojan horse, worms, Ransomware, Spyware & Adware.
Malware is specifically written to harm and infect the host system while a virus is a self-replicating piece of code that infects other software and files on the host system. Once executed it starts spreading itself. It's more like a parasite.
Systweak Antivirus is a software program designed to detect, remove, or quarantine malicious programs and codes that may infect your system or get installed without the user's knowledge. It performs some essential functions:
Since not all Antivirus software can detect all types of malicious codes, Systweak Antivirus ensures to keep its database updated thus is the best protection tool to safeguard you from cyberattacks.
Another very common question about free Antivirus software is, does it protect us or not? But can you get anything for free? There’s nothing called a free lunch you have to pay a price for everything. “Free” Antivirus inevitably makes money by tracking your online activities, installing junkware, and showing advertisements.
Not only this, sometimes they hide Malware, Spyware. If you want to go this route, beware of scammers, identity thieves, and hackers. A free Antivirus will never offer real-time protection, database updates, and other important security features. Therefore, try using trusted Antivirus software to protect your data.

Ransomware is a type of Malware that prevents users from accessing their files or system. To regain access users are asked to pay ransom to the threat actors. The earliest variant of Ransomware was developed in the late 1980s and since then it is thriving.
There are three main types of Ransomware:
Scareware – included rogue security software and tech support scams.
Screen lockers – this type of Ransomware kicks you out of the system completely. Usually, you see a message from an official-looking, FBI, or US Department of Justice.
Encrypting Ransomware – this one is truly nasty. Once cybercriminals get hold of your files, no security software or system restore can get the files for you. The only way to get these files back is to pay the ransom.
