These programs keep check on the major vulnerabilities and keep scanning your computer from time to time for virus and spyware removal. There are so many companies which provide such software to remove virus from computer and CA is one of them. Computer Associates has been in the antivirus business quiet sometime now and they have been providing virus removal solution for home and business users quiet effectively.
EZ antivirus is one of their antivirus programs, which is old now and CA has discontinued this product. The program can still be used to remove any threat from the system but there will be no update available for this particular product. Cyber world is full of virus and hundreds of new virus and spyware are floated everyday and an outdated antivirus program will not be able to detect and remove these new threats from the system. The solution is to install a new and updated anti-virus program or upgrade to another anti-virus program provided by CA.
