How do I cancel a CA Internet Security subscription when I need an activation code for that. CA refuses to provide my activation code.


SPEAKING WITH MY EXPERIENCE: Either try Security Essentials from Microsoft OR Avast. There’s free software out there to try.

Helpful Free Software below Read On.

FREE SPYWARE
Download Spybot Search & Destroy. Restart computer, then run Spybot to see what spyware comes up, AND DELET IT.

FYI---Virus Protection-- 2 programs of virus protection will conflict with each other and will actually cancel out the protection. SO just download one.

Running Spybot Search & Destroy with EITHER Avast or Avg (great Free virus protection programs ) will keep a computer in good working condition. FREE

Dialog boxes keep popping up saying that "Update manager failed " followedby other related boxes. I cannot get them to go away.


Hi,
If you haven't installed some kind of an update manager then these dialogue boxes are most likely due to adware or spyware on your system.
Try installing an anti-spyware utility an do a full system scan for spyware. There are many spyware utilities available on the internet for free. Do a google search to find a free spyware application.
Hope this is helpful.

Password problems


operating systems have passwords I don't know of a built in password for the internet. So the only option would be a third party software that adds internet protection like a firewall maybe. Look for programs like zone alarm, Norton, or Mcafee because they may include internet security it may even be like a net nanny. If you find something disable or uninstall it to see it thats the one creating the problem. Hope this helps.
