How does antivirus software work?

Antivirus software works in a simple way to protect your computer and to save your important and sensitive information. By the following procedure, it detects the virus in your system.

• Real-time scanner: If you do not have an antivirus program in your PC then you cannot scan all your files while opening. Almost all the antivirus programs offer a protection to your PC in the form of a real-time scanner. When antivirus software detects any infected file in your system it deletes it immediately to protect your PC from any harm.

• Boot -time Scan: Most of the antivirus programs have boot-time scanning program. Some virus is so sophisticated that antivirus cannot delete it completely since the virus can duplicate itself while deleting. But if your antivirus program has boot time scanner then it will immediately shut down your system and will restart the computer. By that process, the virus will not be able to create the duplicate form because of the deactivation of the system.

• Protects sensitive information: If your system is infected then there is a possibility that you are sending the virus through your contact list. Sometimes you can find that all your important information is loaded in the networks by your infected system. These networks are called ?botnets’ and they can easily steal all your important credit card and other sensitive information and can use it for their benefits.

It is always preferable to protect your system with an antivirus programming to secure your relevant data and also for the smooth functioning of your system. You can also choose two or multiple antivirus programs for getting better results.
