Computer Virus Vs Spyware

A computer virus is a piece of code designed to replicate itself as many times as possible, spreading from one host computer to any other computers connected to it. It usually has a payload that may damage your personal files or even your operating system.
A spyware, on the other hand, is generally not designed to damage your computer. Spyware is broadly defined as any program that gets into your computer without permission and hides in the background. They are designed to track your Internet habits, nag you with unwanted sales offers or generate traffic for their host Web site.
