You didn't say what virus the computer is infected with so it is kind of hard to name a specific solution to the problem. However here is something generic that might help out.

It sounds as if you may have picked up a virus which has disabled your anti-virus program. There are quite a few out there that will do this. Try going to Malwarebytes.com and down loading Malwarebytes Anti-virus. If you can't do it from the infected computer, find another computer and download it to a flash drive then install it. The definition files may be a little out of date and, depending on how bad your computer is infected, you may not be able to update them immediately. Don't be concerned about that - just run the program and see what develops.

Avast is another free anti-malware program that is worth downloading. I have the Technician's version which runs from a bootable CD, but the free version works pretty well also.

Good luck - some of these things can be quite nasty to deal with.

How do i uninstall avg 2014?


Sounds like you installed the AVG Security Suite instead of the AVG Antivirus Free. Go to Control Panel - Open "Programs and Features" and you should see the program listed there. Right click the program and choose Uninstall. Once uninstalled, restart your computer, download AVG Antivirus Free and install it.

Hope this helps...

I have a trogen virus and no money can I fix it for free?


You can use free antivirus like Avira, Avg or Avast, they are as effective as full version antivirus if updated regularly and registered successfully.

You can download::
1. Avast Free

2. Avg Free

4. Avira Free


Don't install two antivirus at a time, if you are installing one of them or if there's any antivirus program installed on your computer, please uninstall and install the new one, otherwise you may have another problem with your problem.

First install Avast and run a full system scan, then check the scanned result, if you are sure that those trojans or virus etc..etc.. are removed, you are done, no need to uninstall and reinstall the other, or if you still doubt, you can try with the other two after the first one is uninstalled.

If you need further help, let me know.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

POP UPS KEEP COMING UP AND I GET A MESSAGE THAT SAYS I NEED TO DOWNLOAD DATABASE AND I CANNOT ACCESS THE INTERNET


It seems like you have some sort of virus or spyware. If you do not have a virus scanner I would suggest downloading a free one such as Avast ( http://www.avast.com/eng/download.html ) or AVG Free ( http://free.avg.com/download-avg-anti-virus-free-edition ). After installing the Virus scanner I would then download a spyware scanner. I personally use SuperAntiSpyware ( www.superantispyware.com )and Spybot ( www.safer-networking.org/ ), but there are many of them out there. If you cant download them from your computer, go to another computer and download them and save them to a thumb drive or CD. Hope this helps

ok if you think your computer has some kind of spyware or a virus you will need to check your computer for these pests:-

I recommend these programs to help : - AVG Antivirus (free edition)

These two programs are totally free to use and are very good.

I have an unknown trojan virus thats keeps poping up trying to get me to installed anitspyware how do i get rid of it


  1. AntiVirus - AVG Free Edition
  2. AntiSpware - Spyware Blaster
  3. AntiAdware - Ad-Aware
I recommend using all three of these programs, by doing so you have all your bases covered. AVG Free edition is an awesome program, it updates daily so you can catch even the newest viruses. Best of all it's free! Spyware Blaster is another great program, I've found that this will pick up a lot of things other programs may miss, again it's a free program. Ad-Aware is another great program, this program will also clear out any tracking cookies you may have acquired over time. I use all three of these personally and install them on every computer I build or service.
  • Where do I get these great free programs.
If you haven't visited CNET's http://www.download.com already you are missing out on tons of great free programs, they have everything from games demo's to music editing software, screen savers, and of course antivirus, antispyware, and antiadware programs. This site is updated frequently and includes many reviews on their content. u could simply go to this page and use the search box to find the above mentioned programs, but I'll make it easy for you, follow the below links.

For AVG anti virus-http://www.download.com/AVG-Anti-Virus-Free-Edition/3000-2239_4-10320142.html?tag=pop.software
For Spyware Blaster-http://www.download.com/SpywareBlaster/3000-8022_4-10196637.html?tag=lst-2
For AdAware-http://www.download.com/Ad-Aware-2007/3000-8022_4-10045910.html?tag=pop.software
