    Anti-virus programs run on algorithms. There isn't a single algorithm that can independently and perfectly detect all possible viruses
    Anti-virus programs are not yet efficient enough. They haven't evolved as fast as viruses have. It will take years to develop the perfect antivirus program
    Some viruses are capable of destroying anti-viruses
