The truth about anti-virus software

Which anti-virus software is the best? This is a question I get asked at least weekly and the answer is it's a matter of opinion. If there was a best anti-virus program there would'nt be so many, after all there is only one Windows.
It is strictly preference some people love Norton while other hate it because it slows down their pc due to the number of processes it runs.
I personal prefer Bit-defenders online scanner because it is online not bogging down my computer and whatever it can not disinfect it deletes. Another good thing is the updates can not be shut off by a trojan since it is online.
My advice is try several with a free trial and choose whichever you like best.

Hello, Libbe -

Fixya.com, a website intended for asking and answering questions on how to go about REPAIRING THINGS, has no affiliation with NetZero.

To be honest, NetZero does not have the best reputation regarding stopping emails which are infected with malware, which have links to websites which will infect your computer, or which have infected attachments.

I hope you have good anti-virus software installed on your computer and that you update it and scan your computer for malware daily. If you do not, you are just asking for trouble.

If you do not have anti-virus software installed on your computer, ask your computer expert regarding what he / she recommends. Also, the well-respected website CNet.com reviews and recommends anti-virus software. Through Download.com:
CNet helps identify both FREE and PAID anti-virus software which can be downloaded safely (and installed afterwards.)

Best wishes.

Firewall blocked ''bolivar 27 exe'' from installing.

Bolivar 25 is apparently a virus somehow relating to facebook, nothing showed up for Bolivar 27 in my research im guessing its along the same lines as 25 though, i recommend you run anti-virus software and/or anti-spyware.
Best free anti-virus (in my opinion) is: www.avast.com
Best free anti-spyware (once again in my opinion) is: www.spybot.com
Let me know if either of those solves your problem if it doesn't ill do some more research and try to find another solution.
