Even when you are genuine and trustworthy software, you must check the website from which you are downloading the software. Malicious and untrusted sites provide you with software infected with malware.
Downloading files from unknown sources- Along with downloading software, downloading PDF, videos, and audios from untrusted sites may infect your computer with malware.

Online Ads & Social Media- Online ads are a convenient way for criminals to infect your computer with malware. The ads when clicked on, corrupt your computer with malware.
Links and videos from social media may also contain malware. Viruses on social media may infect your computer and steal your personal details like emails and passwords.
Inserting infected disk in your computer- Even if you are extra careful while browsing the net, you can still infect your computer with a virus. Infected hard disks or pen drives, when connected to your computer, may lead to virus infection. They may contain malicious software, which once inserted, will replicate itself in your device.
No antivirus protection- You never know when you stumble upon something that is loaded with malware and viruses.

Common Signs of Malware/Virus Infection
Slow performance- If your computer takes a longer time than usual to start programs or run activities, then it may be infected with a virus. Check your memory and if despite having sufficient memory, your computer is acting up, then it could possibly be a malware infection.
Slow start and booting- Slow performance and slow booting normally go hand in hand when your computer is infected. The computer takes longer to turn on and turn off and even simple activities take hours to perform.
Unexpected pop-ups- One of the most common symptoms of a malware infection is unexpected pop-up advertisements. The pop-ups appear out of nowhere when you are browsing the net and continuously keep showing up. Viruses from these pop-ups can be very dangerous and steal your data. You should NEVER CLICK on these pop-ups and take action against the infection.
Crashes and odd messages- You may have a virus infection if your computer programs start and close automatically, odd error messages start appearing, or your system freezes without any reason.
Low memory- Lack of storage space and low memory is a warning sign of malware infection. The malware has taken most of your computer storage space and is affecting the performance of your computer.
Files are missing & new unknown files are created- Depending on the type of malware, some may delete your files, move them around, or encrypt them so that you can open them. Along with that, they may create new files that are loaded with their replications.
High Internet activity- You may see high network activity if any updates are being installed or if any programs are running. But if you see high network activity even when the programs and updates aren’t running, then your computer may be infected with malware.
