Some of the antivirus software are free initially that scan the system and detect if your system is infected with the virus. You need to buy a license to get more features and facilitates or to remove viruses from the system.

To protect your system for viruses, you need to keep the antivirus software installed with the latest version and keep scanning your system periodically.
