SpySweeper Anti Virus conflicts with Trend Micro AntiVirus

When I purchased my computer it came with Spy Sweeper and Trend Micro Anti Virus. Recently when I turned my computer on, the Trend Micro would not load. I called them today and after much work, we found that my Spy Sweeper had been upgraded to a 5.8.l.5 which includes an anti virus protection and that anti virus program conflicts with the Trend Micro. I don't need two anti virus protections. I called Spy Sweeper, stayed on the phone for 32 minutes, spoke with a gentleman who could not help me and who told me he was sending me to someone else to help me remove the anti virus protection of Spy Sweeper, held on for another 20 minutes and gave up. HELP!!!!!

I would remove Spy Sweeper and Trend Micro. Then I would install the free versions of AVG, Ad-aware 2008, WinPatrol SpyBlaster and ScrubXP .

I have been using this combo for years and have had no problems as long as you keep them updated.

First of all download the link below:
https://ninite.com/revo

then run it and uninstall the trend micro installation and any other programs like old expired anti-virus, that you don't want.

afterwards if you want an Anti-Virus on your machine you might try Avast. You can get it at the link below INSTALLED for you for free. The Avast has two versions Free and Paid. when it is installed it is free. If you want to upgrade then purchase the paid one. But I will tell you right now I cannot remember the last time that I had paid for a Anti-Virus.

Once you have Avast installed make sure you run a FULL SCAN of the HARD DRIVE. Good Luck.

TROJ_VUNDO.BMF virus downloaded from limewire


This is a reference to PC-Cillin / Trend Micro ("TM"). Are you running Trend Micro PC-Cillin on your computer. Are you using more than one anti-virus program? You should only use one as they will conflict with each other.

Try getting in through Safe Mode by tapping the F8 key while the pc is rebooting. Once in uninstall and reinstall your anti virus program.
