20. Q: I find that some websites allow online virus scan. I think that this kind of virus scan is quite good but is it effective?
A: Online virus scan has many limitations such as: no Real–time Protection feature to automatically detect and remove viruses, no ability to remove virus strains which deeply penetrated into system (rootkit, file infector virus, metamorphic virus, etc.), no Deep scan feature, no Firewall to protect computers in process of accessing Internet, etc. Due to such limitations, online virus scan will not ensure the safety of computers from the infection threat and destruction of viruses.
To ensure the safety of your computer, you should use good antivirus software. One good antivirus software must fully meet the following criteria: copyrighted software, regularly update new version, offer live support from the manufacturer in case of virus-related problems.
