    They mainly use programming languages like Assembly language and C which gives them raw power. It is easy to write a efficient virus if you know how to program bootsector. It is also easy to make antivirus if you know the virus' signature

    They use a sandbox Enviroment , which runs any code in a closed enviroment insted of running on OS, this way, the code thinks it's working on Windows while it is not

    See viruses are of many types.

    1) Boot Sector Virus
    Ancient form of viruses. Traditionally written using assembly language. These sit on your boot records. And spread via floppies.

    2) Win32 based general purpose virus
    most general virus, they infect any kind of file they wish. (mostly exe/com)... may be written in Assembly/C/C++ ... they utilize win32 functions and exploit them...

    3) Macro virus
    Created using VB scripting engine that comes with MS Office...

    4) VBS based virus
    Utilizes Windows Scripting Host (WSH) of windows. you code VBS virus as a series of calls to WSH... WSH apparently is so much powerful (I dont know why...) that you can access your entire hard disk and Outlook address book with it...

    5) Trojans / Worms
    Can be written in any language you wish... utilize networking capabilities of many popular programming languages to transmit data. I've myself written a trojan in VB6 long back...

    Unless you know whats and how's of a particular virus, how can you defend yourself??? To stop proliferation of virus you have to study them... and determine its weak points... Since viruses are also some programs, they also have some or the other weak points...

    A case in particular is VBS.Redlof.A ... its is an encrypted VB Script based virus... when it wrecked havoc on my workplace, i studied its weak points and developed its antidote myself... (i'll be happy to share its source code with you guys)

    Not necessarily... Macro Viruses dont need any kind of raw power... they just utilize some stupidity on part of MS... you can code your own macro virus if you study VBScript and some VB also...
