I get calls on computers affected with malware daily and as Shawn said above, most people just aren't aware. It is also difficult because sometimes with a virus/malware if it's not seen by a persons current anti virus, they don't know how to fix it.

I have found that many of those who have these viruses do not fully understand what a virus is and how it works, this is how it spreads. On top of that, there are new malware out there that cannot be seen by the most popular anti-viruses. The most common is the "Windows Security Virus" which tells users they are infected, but needs to buy their product to get rid of it.

I think there needs to be some education on viruses in general to the public. Maybe integrate it into the public school itinerary.
