Definitions
What is a virus?
Malicious software, typically called 'viruses', are programs designed to
infect and damage computers. Most viruses are transmitted over the
Internet, emails or malicious Web sites. A typical virus will replicate
and pass itself undetected to multiple computers. Other forms of
nuisance, such as Trojan horses, worms or spam can infect your
computer in various ways, using up resources or clogging up a
network.
Note
Acer guarantees that your computer was 100% virus free at the time of
purchase and does not cover damages due to viruses.
What is spyware?
Spyware refers to generally unwanted programs that are downloaded
onto your computer while connected to the Internet, often without you
knowing it. Once it has infected your computer, it can snoop on your
browsing activity, collect personal information, cause pop-up ads to
appear, or even change the configuration of your computer. Spyware
consumes resources on your computer; it can slow down your Internet
connection or entire computer system, and even cause crashes.
