    Explanation
    If you know your computer is suspect by malware, you should stop doing any online activity that requires your username, password, and other personal information. This is because malware can steal your sensitive information and use it for malicious purposes. Continuing to shop, bank, or use any online account can put your personal and financial data at risk. It is important to prioritize your online security and take necessary steps, such as using anti-virus and anti-spyware software, and a firewall, to defend against the malware. Calling a professional for help is also a recommended action to ensure the proper removal of the malware.

    D. Tell the DMV or some other related agency about your lost driver license.
    Explanation
    If your lost wallet includes your driver's license, it is important to inform the DMV or a related agency about the loss. This is necessary because your driver's license contains personal information that can be misused if it falls into the wrong hands. By notifying the appropriate authorities, you can protect yourself from identity theft or other fraudulent activities. Simply waiting for someone to return the wallet or posting a facsimile with your information may not provide the necessary security measures to safeguard your personal information.

    Correct Answer
    B. It tell you to give out personal information.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "It tells you to give out personal information." This is because legitimate emails typically do not ask for personal information such as passwords, social security numbers, or credit card details. Asking for personal information is a common tactic used by spammers and scammers to trick individuals into revealing sensitive data. Therefore, if an email explicitly requests personal information, it is likely to be a spam email.

    Correct Answer
    A. Ignore it and delete it.
    Explanation
    When you receive a spam email, the best course of action is to ignore it and delete it. Spam emails are usually sent by unknown sources and often contain malicious content or scams. Responding to or interacting with the email can lead to further issues such as malware infections or identity theft. Therefore, it is important to avoid opening or replying to spam emails and instead promptly delete them to ensure the safety and security of your personal information.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "You can't use your mice." This is not a clue of spyware on your computer because spyware typically does not directly affect the functionality of your mouse.

Malware can consume system resources, causing the computer to become sluggish and unresponsive. Additionally, malware can cause the computer to malfunction, resulting in unexpected crashes or freezes. Another sign is the display of repeated error messages, indicating that something is wrong with the system. These symptoms indicate that the computer has been compromised by malware and requires attention to remove the malicious software.

      Tell your parents.

    Correct Answer
    C. Report to [email protected].
    Explanation
    To report a phishing scam, you should forward the suspicious email or message to [email protected]. This email address belongs to the United States Federal Trade Commission's (FTC) spam database. By reporting the scam to this address, you are providing valuable information to the FTC, which can help them investigate and take action against the scammers. Calling 911 is not necessary unless there is an immediate threat to your safety. Telling your parents may be a good idea for advice and support, but it is not an official way to report the scam.
