How to install antivirus software

The way of installation of the anti-virus software usually depends on the company behind a product, therefore we will consider how to install 3 best anti-virus products. Many brands currently offer supported installations to ease the load on the client, with examples ranging from pre-installation to custom expert installation.

Preseeding takes care of all technical work related to installation and configuration, just create an account when everything is done. Sit down and watch how the program integrates with your computer.


Some companies take a different approach by delegating all technical installation work to a company specialist who will remotely access your computer and install everything on your behalf. Unfortunately, this is not a free surcharge, for this luxury you can expect to double the cost of your antivirus! We don’t think it’s worth it, because you can choose an automatic installation that is free. It’s worth considering if you don’t have the time and you’ve never used a computer before, otherwise I’d stick to the trouble-free automated installation offered by most companies on the market today.

The only manual aspect of installing antivirus software is managing conflicts between it and other software. In rare cases antivirus will take care of this itself. Potentially conflicting software can be other malware removal products, firewalls or other competing software to protect your PC. Removing other antivirus software can sometimes be painful because it is in your interest to keep it on your computer. Some manufacturers of antivirus software are notorious for their difficulty in completely removing viruses from your PC. If you do not completely and correctly remove obsolete antivirus software, it will not only conflict with newer antivirus programs, but will also become a source of advertising virtually anywhere on your PC. Installing antivirus software gives the company access to all areas of your computer that are necessary for its security, but after you finish subscribing to them, many brands will do everything to bring you back on board.

Once installed, it’s time to scan your computer to remove any unwanted software that has entered your computer. Depending on your computer, the scanning time may vary. There are also a number of scans, from a full system scan to a quick scan if you are sure your computer has not been affected.

In addition to properly installing the antivirus software, it is critical to keep your antivirus software up to date and run scans regularly. You can also enable automatic updates, but some older antivirus products may require this manually. It is important to keep your antivirus software up to date, because malware authors are constantly chasing the latest detection algorithms from antivirus companies. Without the latest updates, you expose yourself to new viruses, worms, rootkits and trojans, and the list goes on.
