Viruses are malware, or malicious software, that spreads through your computer and multiplies as it goes. They can slow your computer down, corrupt files, even corrupt the operating system, making it impossible to use your computer.
While viruses, generally speaking, don’t have a monetary purpose it is possible that hackers could steal your information and use it for their own purposes.
How to prevent a virus:

2: Run scans every week or so to keep everything cleaned up
