iYogi's Top 5 Computer Virus Symptoms are the following:

  • Slow PC: Consumers hit by a virus reported that their PC was running slowly. Associated symptoms include slow system start-up and shut down, delays in opening an application, slow Internet browsing speed and overall frustration from productivity loss.
  • Problems with software applications: While using a computer infected with a virus, users experience difficulty in opening and closing software applications. This in turn hampers the speed and performance of the computer.
  • Internet connectivity issues: If users experience problems while connecting or browsing the Internet for accessing e-mail, websites and other services, it is a sure indication that their machines are virus-infected.
  • Error Messages: Frequent error messages like “Unable to Read Hardware”, “Cannot Launch Application”, etc. through system alert pop-ups are also signs of a virus.
  • System Crashes: A computer infected by a virus crashes and re-starts in midsession resulting in loss of data and productivity.

Any or all of these symptoms usually indicate that a machine is infected by a virus.
