    I am not an English teacher, but a computer can be equipped with anti-virus software or an anti-virus program.

    Question Re: 'equip a computer with a software'?

    Thanks to you dear posters. Is there any more informal, or common term used instead of equip? How about kitting it out with ...?



    Cheers!

    I think the verb install is used more commonly than equip in this context.

    Anti-virus software is the ideal term.

    So,

    A computer can have anti-virus software installed.

    You can also use "preinstalled" or "preloaded" instead.

    The computer is preinstalled/preloaded with antivirus software.

    The hyphens "-" are optional.
