Antivirus software scans your computer viruses and malware, identify them and then eliminates. This method should be understood by everyone who uses the computers and electronics media. Antivirus software applies two approaches to detect the viruses by the following.

  1. By means of “VIRUS DICTIONARY” Antivirus software examines the files to check any known viruses.
  2. It identifies the suspicious behavior of a program that indicates infection.

In “Virus Dictionary” method Author of the anti-virus software has already identified some viruses in its dictionary. Antivirus software examines the file of computer and check in a dictionary of known viruses.

If a code matches with the dictionary of virus, then the antivirus software deletes the file.  Or quarantine to make affected file inaccessible to any programs. That makes the virus unable to spread. Anti Virus also attempts to repair the file by removing the virus.

All antivirus software have the same objective: to stop, remove and guard different types of viruses, malwares, adwares, spywares, or whatever you can call it from entering a computer system. Some of them are created to annoy computer users and there are others that are programmed solely to test the integrity of the security structure in a computer network.

All antivirus have different approach to different files that they scanned inside a computer. They have their own brand in treating every file they encounter while monitoring the system. They have and use different technologies of detecting a virus from a file. But, one thing is common in all antivirus software, they use virus signature to distinguish the type and name of a virus.

Whatever antivirus you have, whether a legit or illegal, it is still best to keep your antivirus well updated and always active especially every time you are online.
