SSD's and Antivirus

Last response: in Storage

I don't know anything about how antivirus programs work, but is there any chance scanning a solid state drive will write information on the drive?

I'm thinking about getting a new SSD, but I want to know if installing Ad-aware will have any negative side effects.

Thanks in advance.

Not a problem, works in the same way.

Whether it does or doesn't, you don't have a choice so no reason to sweat about it.

Virus scanning generally consists mostly of reads.
