    If you have ever wondered how antivirus works, I found an interesting article at the Trend Micro website called Faster and more accurate malware detection though predictive machine earning.

    I know at one time antivirus programs used to create a sort of checksum for known malware and then just compare files with a database of known checksums. Times have changed and things are different now. Anyway, I thought it was interesting to see how things work.

    By the way, I use Windows Defender, which comes free with Windows 10 for my security. What does everyone else use?
