Water Flame IT Remote Services would diagnoses your computer to determine any root causes of Malware, Virus or other 'rogue' software and removes any threads found to resolve any issues identified.. Antivirus is computer software used to prevent, detect and remove malicious software.
Cyber crime is rampant! Trojans, worms, malware, exploit kits—they lurk everywhere, even on websites you trust, attacking countless people every day. They give cyber criminals access to your PC, without you even knowing. Antivirus blocks the newest viruses without needing to wait for a virus-definition update and stops hackers with essential protection for shopping and banking.
ANTIVIRUS IDENTIFICATION METHODS: 1.Signature-based detection: is the most common method. To identify viruses and other malware,  the antivirus engine compares the contents of a file to its database of known malware signatures. 2.Heuristic-based detection: is generally used together with signature-based detection. It detects malware based on characteristics typically used in known malware code. 3.Behavioural-based detection: is based on the behavioural fingerprint of the malware at run-time. Clearly, this technique is able to detect (known or unknown) malware only after they have starting doing their malicious actions. 4.Sandbox detection: executes the programs in a virtual environment, logging what actions the program performs. 5.Datamining techniques: are one of the latest approach applied in malware detection. Data mining and machine learning algorithms are used to try to classify the behaviour of a file (as either malicious or benign) given a series of file features, that are extracted from the file itself.
New viruses. Anti-virus programs are not always effective against new viruses, even those that use non-signature-based methods that should detect new viruses. The reason for this is that the virus designers test their new viruses on the major anti-virus applications to make sure that they are not detected before releasing them into the wild.
.Online scanning. Some antivirus vendors maintain websites with free online scanning capability of the entire computer, critical areas only, local disks, folders or files. Periodic online scanning is a good idea for those that run antivirus applications on their computers because those applications are frequently slow to catch threats. One of the first things that malicious software does in an attack is disable any existing antivirus software and sometimes the only way to know of an attack is by turning to an online resource that is not installed on the infected computer.
