In a world in which ransomware can encrypt your files, and banking Trojans could drain your account it is imperative to take advantage of every benefit you can get. This is why a lot of PC users decide to replace their built-in antivirus protection with software from an outside developer.

The majority of antivirus programs are easy to install and configure. Double-click the installer file, and follow the prompts. Some antivirus programs need admin privileges. Be sure to use an administrator account when installing.

Once the antivirus program has installed, it will often require you to restart your PC. Allow it to do so in order for the program to need to reboot for the changes to take effect. After the software has rebooted, run a full scan of your system to ensure it is free of malware.

After a thorough scan, the antivirus program should have identified any malware on your computer and quarantined or removed them. The software will also likely have suggested additional steps to safeguard your computer in the future. Based on the software it could be periodic scheduled scans or setting up real-time security.

When selecting antivirus software select a vendor that regularly updates its malware database. This will ensure that your system is protected against the latest threats that are constantly evolving to avoid detection by anti-virus software. It’s also advisable to consider other security features such as firewalls, which keep the hackers and snoopers away from your network.
