What does antivirus software do?

Hack

Antivirus software is a programme which prevents, searches for, detects and removes viruses and other malicious software like worms, trojans, adware and more from your PC or laptop.

It is important for every computer connected to the internet to have some form of antivirus software installed to deflect the constant bombardment of potentially harmful online viruses. Did you know that more than 60,000 new pieces of malware software are created daily? This makes it essential to keep antivirus software up to date so as it can best protect your computer and your files from threats.

How does antivirus software work?

  • Installed onto a machine
  • Scans whole PC, files and directories
  • Identifies malware and removes threats in the code
  • Proactive – will warn of potential threats

Antivirus software is varied and there are many different products available which will also perform different tasks. In general, antivirus programmes scan your whole PC or specific files or directories to identify malware and remove any malicious code they detect. They will also be waiting to identify any potentially harmful software entering your system and isolate it straightaway.
