An antivirus solution is a piece of software developed by companies from this category. Practically, an antivirus is like a shield that protects your computer from viruses. It offers a virtual machine so that whenever you launch an application or process, that process is scanned and analyzed for various code embedded in the file. The antivirus is created to detect and remove the code or the entire corrupted file. If you browse the database of Software Informer, you will find many antivirus solutions, both free and paid.
