Antivirus has been marketed for a long time as a commodity like a toothbrush, detergent or automobile. However, even though they are widely used are not without faults.

Antivirus software simply cannot keep up with the variety and variety of new malwares being created every day. It’s an arms race and not all antivirus software available on the market or online offers a level of security close to 100 percent.

Another issue is that avast antivirus viruses and Trojans can alter the software on your computer so that it is unable to recognize them properly. This can happen when the virus alters the settings of the antivirus program or when it exploits one of its features or functions to create a false-positive.

In addition, there are many instances where the antivirus software cannot detect files even though they are infected with malware. The antivirus software has not yet had the chance of adding the file to its database. To do this, it must examine the file and compare its content with malicious files already present in the database of the antivirus. This is a lengthy and resource-intensive process. The slower it runs, the less accurate is the detection. The antivirus must also install interceptors that study events in the computer’s kernel order to send the data to its engine.
