·        Some antivirus are paid and they charge money for one year package and provide updations also.

·        Some antivirus are free or open source on the internet but these antivirus may not be fully secure because they are not fully trusted sources. Probably, these antivirus are made by hackers to spread more spyware through the antivirus.

·        Some antiviruses are paid but still they provide few trial period to the customer for demo purpose. But after the demo period they charge their annual charges.

How antivirus works??

Each antivirus works on its directory. Company put the directory  in the antivirus and declare all the names of viruses , Trojans, spywares etc. wheneven any identity of any file does match to its directory names it eliminate that file moreover alert us about that malicious activity. Updation Is necessary because number of new viruses comes in network and company patch that threats to its directory and that is why antivirus require updations.
