An antivirus as the name itself is a program being installed on a computer to prevent viruses from infecting your computer. Antivirus is normally installed after the installation of the operating system. An antivirus is one of the most important software that every computer must have. A computer without an antivirus is critical because it is prone to viruses which can damage your system. You must make sure that your antivirus is up to date to be sure that your system can be protected from new viruses. Don’t rely on free trials because its features are limited which can still cause infections. Don’t ever surf the internet without an antivirus.
