By stickystebee-16825
Computer programs that are used to find computer viruses are called antivirus software. There are various types of attacks faced by computer users. Some of the more common viruses are worms, root kits, trojans, malware, etc. Modern antivirus software provides security from these viruses.

After the introduction and growth of the Internet, these viruses found a way to spread quickly. There are many methods used by antivirus software to detect the attacks. Some of them are signature based detection, malicious activity detection, suspicious behaviour monitoring, heuristics analysis, etc.


Behind this software there are some other ways to provide security for computers and their data. One of them is by using network firewalls. These firewalls are used to prevent unknown programs and the internet processes from having access to the computer system. Unlike the antivirus software, it is used to protect a LAN from the Internet or other LANs. The system virtualization can also be made to prevent the computers from virus infection. Anti-spyware software programs are used to remove the spyware and prevent the unauthorized users interaction with a computer. Many commercial firms released their products to remove or block

spywares.

Nowadays, the antivirus programs also prevent the features of anti-spyware. The separate anti-spyware gives us real time protection against the spyware software, provides an easy interface to use, scans the contents of operating system files, windows registry, installed programs, etc. Some of the programs that are used to automatically play, display or download advertisements to a computer are known as adware. Some of the types of adware are actually spyware. There are also programs that are used to block typical adware from infecting the computer system.

Antivirus software should be updated periodically so that it may check for any recent attacks. There are also many types of software available separately for internet security. Some of the web browsers are more secure from attacks than others.
