Installation and configuration of anti-virus software

All anti-virus software vendors have support pages which detail how to install and configure their products. Some of the generic configurations could include:

  • Frequency of updates (AV software needs data that define what viruses it is looking for)
  • Whether to exclude folders or files (performance issues could result from scanning files unnecessarily)
  • Whether to scan on opening or saving (or both) files
