It creates constantly new virus on the network and it is therefore essential that an antivirus regularly receive updates of new virus definitions. When a virus protection acts as a filter for coming in and out of your computer, so it should be installed very close to your hardware, and for the same reason, it should also, when you start your computer, be started before the network or storage devices. It’s not very fun if you have a virus scanner that only information that has become infected instead of preventing contagion.
Therefore, it is often antivirus installed as drivers and services. This places great demands on the anti-virus software when the errors and bugs in drivers can cause total breakdowns. It should also therefore never try to have two antivirus installed at the same time.
QBRITS therefore recommend selecting an anti-virus protection from large established security company that has antivirus as its core business and not those who have it as a sideline. They must also have a somewhat coverage of the viruses that are already out and be quick to implement protection for new viruses found.
Additional information about Computer viruses can be found under “What is a computer virus” on QBRITS help pages.
It is recommended to have virus protection on all computers in use; but there is a huge amount of applications and it can be difficult to choice.
You are basically the only person that is using the computer, and primly for work. You rarely or never download software. You are also paying attention when you’re surfing on the Internet and avoiding installing plugins where they are not needed (when the browser says it wants to install anything).
