Antivirus Software

Antivirus software is a program or a set of programs that are created to prevent, search for, detect and remove malicious software like worms, trojans, adware and more. These programs are critical for any computer that accesses the internet as your computer can be infected within minutes of connecting.

It is important that your antivirus is a trusted program that regularly updates, as today’s malware changes appearance quickly to avoid detection by older definitions. Today’s viruses are programmed to do more than just damage your computer or data, they can prevent you from accessing your data and hold it ransom, or they can take control of your computer, find out your personal or client information such as financial information that might be stored on your computer, and so much more.
