But Today we will explore something really unique and off course of much more importance in our day to day life. So friends lets start with "How viruses and Trojans spread themselves in your PC".
How a System is got Infected because of your Negligence or lack of awareness?
1. Using Cracked Versions of software specially security ones like antivirus, anti-spyware etc.
Why I have said this is the first and major cause of infection because of the following simple reason that All hackers know that general internet user public always searches for cracked versions of software's and wishes to use them for free and Hacker take benefit of them. You all now be thinking how it help hackers. We know that almost all antivirus show each and every keygen as virus or some trojan depending upon its type. Now if we all know that then how come hackers will forget this fact so what they do they attaches trojans and viruses to these files and at the time When your antivirus shows it as virus you ignores the alert and keep the keygen means trojan running.
NOTE: And Guys an important note for you all, If your antivirus doesn't show any keygen or crack as a virus then don't ever think that its not a virus but its a most dangerous thing. Why dangerous because now Hacker has used some more brain to fool you that this time he has made the virus undetectable by simply editing or manipulating the hex code of original virus or attaching some dead strings. So what is the moral of story Please don't use cracked versions.
Now you all be thinking that if we don't use the cracked versions then how we will able to get full versions of the software's. Don't worry when I am there no fear drink beer and enjoy everything for free. Its solution will be in solutions step just read article.
2. Pen drive or USB drive :
The biggest cause of infection of your system is usb drives and external hard disks.
Now how a virus enters into your system using USB drives. You have connected your USB drive to your friends computer and by chance (sorry its for sure i.e 100%) your friends system is infected by virus or Trojans and its the property of Virus that it replicates itself using memory. So when you connect your USB to your friends computer your USB is now infected by virus and now when you connect this USB to your PC using the property of your Windows that it searches the files in Newly connected device and autorun the device and for doing this it loads the index of your USB's file system into Memory and now if USB has virus its the property of virus its replicates itself using system memory. Now if you are using good antivirus , your antivirus will pop warning and alert messages and some times you ignores them means your system is also infected. For USB drive virus solution keep reading article.

Then what they do they simply bind their malicious codes with some of files and when users download it his system is infected and he can never imagine that the virus has come from wallpaper that he has downloaded from unknown site.
