What does antivirus software do?

  • Answers
  • Basically, it prevents you from having malware on your pc and scans periodically. Each antivirus company has their own malware database and the PC see if any file matches. Some have intrusion detection and web filtering from accessing malicious websites with an additional price.
    To be honest, Windows Defender today is pretty secure enough for normal use.

  • Monitors your files, processes and network connections for suspicious behaviors or signatures. If it sees something which could be malicious, it is blocked (and quarantined) and the user is notified to take action.
