What do you think of computer virus, does it annoy you? How about anti-virus? Do you think that anti-virus makers are also the computer virus makers?

Virus is something that really hate very much. Virus can erase my data and break my computer. Anti Virus is the only way to kill that virus. That's why I always update my anti virus. Yups! Anti Virus maker known as Virus maker too! They make virus to make their anti virus sold out on the store. The best anti virus maker is the best virus maker.

Sometimes such thought has come to me. But what can we do? We all will never know the truth and we all are only consumers. I think this is the business rules. Although we can find an evidence which telling if the computer antivirus companies are also the computer virus makers, the fact is the viruses will always annoying us. We have no more option unless using their antivirus softwares. I just thinking if we must have at least enough skills about how is the good computerization works so we can preventing ourselves from the computer virus threat. Have a nice day and happy mylotting.

Hi maria, Oh!!! I mega-super-over hate viruses! lolz They killed my previous pc and I am glad that I was able to revived it. haha! I think anti-virus is very essential to every computer device, without it your computer will be exposed to different spyware and malware that can actually knockdown your PC. Getting the right anti-virus program is indeed important. To answer your last question, I'm not sure about the possibility of this anti-virus makers of creating some kind of computer viruses for them to gain or generate more income. Doing such thing is very awful. But I think with some trusted anti-virus makers they maybe don't do such thing for they're trying their hardest to combat this kind of stuff but thinking it over what will happen if viruses doesn't exist at all. They will be also not here, right?! lolz

I think big antivirus companies don't create virus to in order to sell their antivirus.. First its unethical and second its against the law. (to create viruses) But I believe some little or small time antivirus maker do create some virus. .. I also believe that antivirus company pays virus maker to reveal the codes of viruses they made. Or pay hacker to test the defense of the antivirus they make.

All I can say is, just try and infect my computer and I'll definitely kill them all!!! :D But I wish no one here could get a grudge of me because of this and put a virus in my computer. Sorry hackers hehe :D Virus makers are arrested but not put into jail. They are recruited into secret government jobs or hired by antivirus companies. It is true that some anti-virus makers (can't mantion any name :D) produce viruses to boost their earnings. It is natural in the business industry but not for us :D
