Hello, to turn your protection on, follow this:

1.- Go to Start >> Control Panel >> Security Center

Turn it on your protection from there. If you dont have an antivirus installed on your machine you can get one for free here:

I keep getting the message "Potentially harmful software detected". Although I did a cleaning and found no harmful software, the message continues to appear.

I dont know howto upload music to my files


1- do not use any FREE music DL's they are NOT scaned for virus you are taking a risk. 2- copy and paste the music file to MyMusic. And BEFORE you open any music file scan for virus first. I use save2pc Ultimate software, I can DL music from youtupe and elimate the viurs problems by 90%. If you like DL'ing music then you might want to try out that softwasr first. I find it to be excelent

I do not know how to download my music, the disc that was provided will not work, my computer says it has a virus...HELP


You can simply use drag and drop method to transfer music from your computer to your MP3 player. You can also use Windows media player 11 to transfer music. Here is a link:

If the songs are DRM protected, please use Rhapsody to transfer them. You can refer to this link:

It could be a few things. Try re-seating your RAM modules to make sure they are inserted properly. It could be a virus (a la subseven). If you were in a public hotspot someone could have hacked you. If you get it fixed read this article.

I have a hard time installing AVAST free anti virus download because I am a beginner, can you teach me how to download it safely my PC has no virus protection up to now. Thank you for your assistance.


you dont want avast, it has horrible reviews, besides later on it will slow your computer, and eventually deem itself as a virus, most people dont need virus protection unless they are constantly downloading from shady websites

Windows Installation gives blue screen errors.


Hi, at the boot up go into your bios [ on MSI press the delte key continuosly] and turn OFF the onboard virus protection. This can block all O/S from loading as they need to write to the bios in the installation process. Ensure you turn it back on after installation, it is there to stop hackers getting into your bios and wrecking your system. Regards mistyman

Have you turned off any virus protection/spyware protection before you re-installed? Make sure the program is uninstalled in add/remove programs. Check for any spyware or viruses on the machine. Let me know what happens. Good Luck, Tim
