This paper studies the fractional order model for computer virus in SEIR model. Firstly, the basic reproduction number R0, which determines the threshold of the spread of the virus is determined. The stability of equilibra was also determined and studied. The Adams-Bashforth-Moulton algorithm was employed to solve and simulate the system of differential equations. The results of the simulation depicts that by small change in α led to big change in the associated numerical results.
