What is Browsing ? What is downloading ?
Browsing is a form of downloading. When you view Web pages, you have downloaded the information you see from the Internet.
Web pages vary in size. A Web page with only a small number of pictures and a lot of text will be relatively small in size. A colourful Web page with more pictures than text will be, as a rule, a lot larger.
A good indicator of how large a Web page is, is how long it takes to download. Small pages appear on your screen quickly and larger pages take longer.
What is a Computer Virus?
Computer viruses spread when certain programs are executed onto your PC. Your computer may become infected by a computer virus when installing copied programs from a disk or downloading programs from the Internet. Viruses can only spread from computer to computer in a limited number of ways. The most common way is for an infected program to be copied or downloaded to a computer and then run.
There are a number of ways that software can be transmitted over the Internet. Programs can be manually downloaded from Web and FTP sites. They can be sent via email. They can be passed around using the file transfer capabilities of online chat and `buddy services (IRC, ICQ etc.). They can even be downloaded from newsgroups.
