How to Tell if Your Antivirus is Stuck or Not Working Properly?
There are various reasons that your antivirus may not start up when you want it to. For instance, a stuck-on startup antivirus may be caused by a Windows update, malware or even a virus.
To fix this issue, try restarting your computer and/or uninstalling the antivirus software and reinstalling it again. If you’re still having problems after doing this, then try updating the antivirus software to the latest version.
If you are using antivirus software and it is stuck, you should try these simple steps to test if it’s working properly:
Go to your device settings and make sure that you have the latest updates for your antivirus.
- Uninstall the current antivirus and install a new one
If the problem persists, uninstall the current antivirus and install a new one.
- Check for malware on other devices
If you’re using antivirus software on multiple devices, make sure that they’re all up to date with security patches.
