  antivirus program
  
      Programs to detect and remove computer viruses.  The
     simplest kind scans executable files and boot blocks for a
     list of known viruses.  Others are constantly active,
     attempting to detect the actions of general classes of
     viruses.  antivirus software should always include a regular
     update service allowing it to keep up with the latest viruses
     as they are released.
