software is a software that deals directly with the architecture of the computer hardware. Operating system is a system software.

Application software is a software that interacts with end users and basically does whatever end user is working on. Application software does NOT deal with the architecture of a computer.

While this is true, just because it's installed as Application software it does not mean it is classified as one. There are exceptions AV's being one of them.
