Antivirus Software

Antivirus software detects and removes malicious software on your computer. Up-to-date antivirus is an essential component of technology security on all your devices, including computers, smartphones and tablets.

Antivirus software companies continually update their software to better protect against new and emerging threats, so be sure you have your antivirus software set to update automatically to current.
