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 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

How do i stop my computer from using redirect


Most of the time is a Virus. I suggest you scan with Spybot Search & Destroy, and remove whatever it show. Then restart computer and do Malwarebytes.
See how far you can go. Below is some helpful
INFORMATION YOU CAN USE.

A Virus normally corrupts your computer. IF You have to do a Reformat. Be sure and do a Back-up First., because you will loose everything.

If you know how to do a back-up, save all your documents, pictures and music. If not take it to a reputable computer shop to take of this. There will be a slight charge, but they will save all your important data.

Helpful Free Software below Read On.


If you find any of this helpful, pls rate me. !

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
