An antivirus program is a security application that scans the files and programs on your computer for viruses, spyware, and other types of malicious software. Antivirus software can help protect against many types of attacks such as keyloggers, rootkits (a type of malware), Trojans (malicious code written to take advantage of a program’s weaknesses) and worms. Your laptop or tablet needs protection from these threats because most devices are less secure than traditional computers due to several factors including: limited memory space resources, operating system vulnerabilities and targeted attacks by more sophisticated adversaries. If a device does not have an antivirus component installed it may be vulnerable to some common malware strains although this is rare with modern systems which employ layered security mechanisms at all times. For best results you should install antivirus if your device already has an operating system installed as well as any pre-installed apps such as apps from Microsoft Office 365/Microsoft Store/Apple App Store etc.. While newer versions of Windows laptops often include built-in or bundled anti virus applications this is not necessarily true for desktops so look into what version your PC manufacturer provides if they do offer one – this will ensure you get the most current functionality available.
