Antivirus is an application program whose function is to detect and eradicate malicious programs, which are called malicious code on computer devices. If the antivirus database is unable to eradicate a malicious code, then usually the antivirus will quarantine the malware. The duration of quarantine time will be determined until the antivirus finds a formula to eradicate the malicious code. Users can also immediately delete data attacked by malicious code stored in the quarantine folder.
To make it easier for users, antivirus programs provide scheduling facilities that can be adjusted according to the user’s wishes. Scheduling in question is a schedule for downloading (downloading) the database and version, as well as a schedule for scanning (detecting) automatically. However, to schedule a download, of course, a computer device must be connected to the internet network. The database updating process can also be done manually.
