Virus is a certain program that replicates itself, can cause damage to your computer and can spread to other computer. Anti virus is a software. It can help detecting, preventing and removing such infection or virus. The advantages it can give us users is that, it alerts us if a potential virus is on the verge of attacking our PC and it removes threats by itself. There are a lot of anti virus software that you can check online. I cannot tell which one is the best, it depends on the users’ satisfaction. Check for reviews first before installing, for you to have at least an idea based on the feedbacks given by users. I cannot say though it’s a 100% guarantee. Soft wares will always have its drawbacks. It depends on the users understanding to the alerts presented by the software. They might be able to respond it in wrong way and might result to a breach of security. There are also malwares ( malicious softwares ) or virus that cannot be detected by any anti virus because they do not have signatures yet. So still computers are prone to malwares, but if you have an anti virus then they can be removed before it replicates. You can check for anti virus security softwares online. You need to check first system requirement before installing, it might result to computer issues if it doesn’t meet the requirements. There are softwares that are for free but for a certain period of time and needs to be updated and might be asking for a fee for registered/licensed ones.  You can download it and install  straight to your PC from the internet.
