There’s a very specialized type of malware called a root kit. These insidious programs can install themselves onto your computer and wreak massive havoc – we’re talking remote control of your computer – they can literally engulf your entire operating system and run it like a puppeteer. Once they have control of your system, they can allow other viruses on to steal your information and destroy your computer. The worst part of all of this is that they are borderline-undetectable. Traditional virus scanners can’t pick them up because they run outside your operating system. They’re like the Charles Manson of viruses.
