Question about PC Desktops

I have subscribed to Nortons Anti-Virus and I believe that my young daughter has started uninstalling the program on accident and I do not know how to fix the problem. Now I have a virus of some sort and can not figure how to go about stopping it.

If you are using Windows XP or higher, you can try system restore to rollback the computer to before your daughter uninstalled it, but that application often doesn't work. Try re-installing Norton. Fortunately, the installation key is stored on your computer, so it should re-install with no problem. Then it will scan your system during install.

After installing anti virus software my desktop is not showing


Run the system in safe mode or last known good condition. Remove the anti virus. You should uninstall few unwanted softwares or installed for temporary. Clear the temporary files. Stop few start up applications. Re-start the PC - it will run perfectly. Another step you can follow - running the system in safe mode you may re-store the PC (System Restore program in System Tools) of earlier date. So your system should run then.

AVG slowing computer


Spybot is an anti-spyware program, which shouldn't affect the anti-virus at all. The thing is, though, you can have as many anti-spyware programs as you want, but only one virus scanner. Otherwise, things get messed up. But As long as there are no Norton, McAfee, CA Antivirus, Kaspersky, or things like that on the computer, you should be fine. Also, check your scanning schedule to see if maybe it is running a virus scan every time you boot to Windows. That would cause things to slow down tremendously. And you can go to Start > All Programs > Startup and delete things you don't need running when you start Windows. If you want, you can delete everything in that menu without any real negative effect. Those things can be started manually if you need them to.
