Computer VirusesA computer virus is an illegal and potentially damaging computer program designed to infect other software by attaching itself to any software it contacts. In many cases, virus programs are designed to damage computer systems maliciously by destroying or corrupting data. If the infected software is transferred to or accessed by another computer system, the virus spreads to the other system. Viruses have become a serious problem in recent years, and currently, thousands of known virus programs exist.Three types of viruses are a boot sector virus, file virus, and Trojan horse virus. A boot sector virus infects the boot program used to start the system. When the infected boot

MIPS can be the execution speed of a computer. For instance, 5 MIPS is 5,000,000 instructions per second. Modern personal computers often perform at 100 MIPS. MIPS rates are not uniform. Some are averages while some are peak performances. In addition, it takes more instructions on some machines to perform the same function (RISC vs. CISC, mainframe vs. micro). Because of this, MIPS are sometimes called "MisInformation to Promote Sales." The MIPS rate is just one factor in overall

Boot process runs very smoothly in Windows computers, but if there was a problem, it needs to be repaired before any software is open. As the power-on self-test is operating, the boot process produces flashing lights, whirring noises, and beeping. This test gives you a warning if the computer is out of whack, but it's unable to warn you of what's about to happen. The most important purpose of the boot process is that it loads the operating system from hard disk into memory, which communicates with any input, output, or storage devices.

Currently they use windows 7 as their most updated version while other students use the updated software Windows 10 and X. The city has yet to see the requisite number of computer science grads and students necessary for a reasonably sized IT sector to develop. Unless the city can do a better job of either attracting more graduates to come here or institute programs in schools to encourage students to go into the field, there will always be a lack of IT labor and lack of skills to fill the jobs.
