How does antivirus work?

Questions like “What does antivirus software do? and “How does antivirus software work?” are very common and can be answered quite simply. Android, macOS and Windows antivirus products all work in the same basic way: they actively scan all incoming files and connections, looking for malicious code.

What is malware?

Malware is a term that is used to refer to any type of malicious program or code, designed specifically to exploit weaknesses in computer, smartphone or tablet operating systems. It includes trojans, key loggers, spyware, viruses, worms, adware, ransomware and bots/botnets. The best anti-malware software, like ESET NOD32, is designed to protect your devices from all of these types of malicious code.

How does malware get into my computer?

There are a number of ways that malware may get into your computer or smartphone. It could reside on websites that you visit, be contained in files that you download or in email attachments. It could also be present in apps you download and install from unknown or untrustworthy sources.

How do I know if I have malware?

If you don’t have an app installed on your device that can perform a full malware or virus scan, you may or may not notice the presence of malware. Some malware will slow your system down but other types can only be detected with capable antivirus software.

How does malware put my computer at risk?

Malware will not normally damage any of the hardware that you use but it can be configured to steal passwords and other sensitive data, delete files and encrypt drives so you no longer have access to them. For this reason, we highly recommend installing one of our antivirus products.

How does ESET NOD32 Antivirus protect against ransomware?

NOD32 Antivirus protects against ransomware with ESET's time-proven multilayered protection, trusted by over 110 million users worldwide.

ESET Ransomware Shield is an additional layer protecting users from ransomware. This technology monitors and evaluates all executed applications based on their behaviour and reputation. It is designed to detect and block processes that resemble the behaviour of ransomware.

By default, the anti-ransomware shield that is part of our advanced antivirus package will block any application on your device that exhibits behaviour typical of ransomware. For this reason, we recommend choosing the Enable Audit Mode option at first: this will allow you to choose what action to take whenever suspicious activity is detected. Any legitimate applications that are flagged by the system can be whitelisted, ensuring that they are able to function normally after you disable audit mode. Once you have disabled audit mode, action will automatically be taken whenever suspicious behaviour is detected on your device.

Can ESET NOD32 detect spyware?

Yes. As a comprehensive anti-malware and antivirus software solution,  ESET NOD32 includes anti-spyware functionality. The firewall will intercept attempts to install spyware on your system and you can run a full scan at any time to make sure that nothing has managed to get through. If you are looking for anti-spyware software that offers outstanding protection against all manner of malicious code and will automatically deal with attacks when they are detected, ESET NOD32 is the best antivirus software suite for Windows, Android and macOS devices in Australia. It will actively protect your system against all types of malware, spyware and viruses.

Will ESET NOD32 slow down my computer?

No, it should not have any impact on your computer’s performance. We have designed and built ESET NOD32 to be the best antivirus app for all types of computers. Whether you have a blazingly fast gaming laptop or an economical desktop PC with a limited amount of RAM and an older CPU, you will find that our award-winning antivirus suite runs quietly in the background. Unless you run a deep scan at the same time as playing a game that is designed to stretch your device to its limits, you won’t even notice it’s there, protecting your files and apps at all times.

Can an antivirus protect against phishing?

Yes, ESET NOD32 includes excellent anti-phishing capabilities. Every website you access is compared to a constantly updated database of known phishing sites and when a match is found, your connection to that site will be terminated immediately

Does an antivirus make online shopping safer?

This depends on the type of antivirus software you use. If you want added protection for online shopping and banking transactions, we recommend our Smart Security Premium and Internet Security products. Both of these include online shopping protection that will keep your details safe when you make purchases and pay for services on the internet.

Do I need an antivirus for Windows?

As the protection included with Microsoft’s operating systems has become more efficient, many people have started to wonder whether they really need to install a third-party Windows antivirus solution. In our opinion, if you want to make sure your data and apps are safe, it is still a good idea to purchase a well-regarded antivirus product like ESET NOD32.

Do I need an antivirus for Mac?

Whilst it’s true that, in the past, most malware was designed to target Windows operating systems, this is beginning to change. As more people are finding they need to know how to protect against ransomware and other malware on macOS devices, the demand for effective lightweight antivirus products for Apple computers is increasing.

What is the best antivirus for me?

Whether you’re looking for the best antivirus for gamers or general use, we can unreservedly recommend ESET NOD32. If you require something with even more functionality, check out ESET Smart Security Premium and ESET Internet Security.
