How to Install Simple Antivirus Software For PC

Downloading the program is the first step in installing the simple antivirus software on a pc. Double-click the downloaded application to begin the installation. The installer will guide you through all the steps required to install the program. This includes accepting the terms and conditions and deciding where the antivirus is saved on your computer. Depending on the program, you may require a registration key or register an account with the software company.

After the antivirus program has been installed, you need to activate it to begin scanning for malicious software. As part of the activation most antivirus programs will ask for you to sign up or supply personal details. This is typically optional. Once you’ve registered and confirmed your registration, a confirmation message or email should confirm that the antivirus program has been activated.

Depending on your anti-virus software, you may be asked to perform an entire system scan or choose a file or folder to scan. During the scan, it will search for and delete any malicious files or folders. Certain programs will also run periodic or automated scans to detect any new malware and keep your computer free from threats.

These two programs are able to detect malware and rogue samples prior to downloading or being launched on Mac. VirusBarrier was able to identify all malware samples we gave it. It will also alert you if you download or run suspicious-looking software.
