Why is it important to update your antivirus software?

How many times do we see antivirus update notifications and we ignore them? It is important to constantly update the antivirus software on a computer because computers are regularly threatened by new viruses. The anti-virus updates contain the latest files needed to combat new viruses and protect your computer.

Antivirus software provides signature files which are very important since they contain the latest lists of known viruses. These signature files are released daily, and sometimes even more often.

To make sure that your antivirus is serving its purpose, its best to configure it to automatically check for updates at least daily.
