There is a dispute between supporters and opponents of anti-virus programs for PCs and gadgets. A small percentage believes that for the safety of your device it’s enough to be a competent user, not follow dubious links, don’t install unverified software, etc. The main idea of those who are against antiviruses is that modern protection tools are far from ideal and will not always be able to protect your gadget from viruses and malware. In part, they are right, because in most cases the infection of the operating system occurs through stupidity and not caution.
However, we are still supporters of antivirus software and believe that even the most experienced and careful user can make a mistake that will lead to serious problems and viruses.
How do antiviruses work?
The main tasks of antivirus software are to detect malicious code, prevent it from infecting the operating system or files, and restore them after infection.
How to choose the right protection? First of all, you need to decide how exactly you will protect your device: will it be permanent, background and automatic protection, or will it be enough one-time checks in manual mode?
When it comes to full-fledged protection tools, we by default mean primarily paid anti-virus software, which requires installation on a PC and provides constant background monitoring of what is happening in real time.
Below we have described the most popular anti-virus software that provide the best protection for personal data and have many additional useful features.
